Welcome to our website. We will feature information regarding our area's EPA Superfund site, the Tar Creek Superfund site, and other topics that peak our interest.

On the sidebar to the left please find links to some of Gina's Emporia State University final projects.

*Please note there is a broken link on the ES775 project for EarthExplorer. The current URL is http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/.

As we only reside a few miles from the Tar Creek Superfund site, this area offers much opportunity for research and study. Gina was co-author of Route 66: Geology and legacy of mining in the Tri-state district of Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Published in From Precambrian rift volcanoes to the Mississippian shelf margin: Geological field excursions in the Ozark Mountains field guide 17, K. R. Evans and J. S. Aber (Eds.), The Geologic Society of America. Her final research paper for her M.S. in Physical Science was An Analysis of the Neosho and Spring River basins for spatial and temporal variabilities and chemical trends in the Tri-State Mining District of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri.
