This photograph features the RV G.O. Seltzer pulling the barge out onto the lake. The crew boat was named in memory of Geoffrey Owen Seltzer (1959-2005), one of the most influential contributors to the field of Quaternary science. Geoff laid much of the foundational work on Lake Junín and the surrounding region, making a lasting impact not only on future studies in the area, but also on many students with his generosity, genuine care, and excellent mentorship. If he were here today, he would be very proud of this project. Read more about Geoff Seltzer here: ftp://rock.geosociety.org/pub/Memorials/v34/Seltzer.pdf Photo: Don Rodbell Post: Christine Y. Chen
