Maureen Long, Yale University Berthoud 241, 4-5PM The Appalachians and How They Got That Way: New Views of Eastern North America from the Earthscope Project Abstract: The surface geology of eastern North America is extraordinary in its complexity. This complexity reflects a wide range of tectonic processes that have operated in the region over the past billion years, including episodes of subduction and rifting associated with two complete Wilson cycles of supercontinent assembly and breakup. It is poorly known, however, how…

Eric Toberer Colorado School of Mines, Department of Physics Abstract:  The transition from bulky vacuum tubes to solid state transistors in the 1960s heralded the dawn of the information age.   In contrast, we have yet to experience a similar revolution in our ability to control heat.  Today, electricity is primarily produced via mechanical heat engines that drive a generator; likewise, refrigeration is achieved through similar compression cycles.  For the last 200 years, solid state analogs to these mechanical engines have…
