 Dr. Julia Daly is a geomorphologist at the University of Maine at Farmington. She teaches from an earth systems perspective, including courses focused on landscape processes and evolution, and climate change. Her research interests are currently centered on better understanding the dynamics of subalpine and alpine lake systems at high elevation lakes in western and central Maine. UMF undergraduates have worked on this project with Dr. Daly since 2007, helping to deploy and maintain high-resolution data loggers from these remote sites located along the Appalachian Trail. Dr. Daly is an enthusiastic advocate of engaging students in field-based projects at all levels and incorporates as much outdoors, place-based learning into her courses and research as possible.

Reusch, Douglas
Associate Professor of Geology
Degrees
1999 PhD University of Maine; 1983 MSc Memorial University of Newfoundland; 1976 BA Middlebury College
Areas of Expertise
Geology: Appalachian Tectonics, Earth System Science, Long-term Carbon Cycle

Dr. Douglas Reusch, Associate Professor of Geology, is interested in the origins and significance of mountains, notably the New England Appalachians, and also how tectonic processes affect carbon cycling and Earth’s climate. He has participated in Antarctic research, Ocean Drilling Leg 183 to the southern Indian Ocean, and mapping projects in coastal Maine, west-central Maine and Newfoundland. Along the way, he has taught 9th grade earth science and was a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology. At UMF, Dr. Reusch teaches Field Introduction to Geology, Oceans: Ancient and Modern, Structural Geology and Tectonics, Geochemistry, and Carbon Fundamentals. He has also engaged UMF students in geologic research, including mapping of the nearby spectacular Bald Mountain field site.
