Beta Analytic Announces Winner of GSA 2019 AMS Date Raffle

Congratulations to Dr. Brian McConnell for winning Beta Analytic’s AMS Date raffle exclusive to attendees of the 131st annual meeting of the Geological Society of America (GSA) held in Phoenix, Arizona. The four-day event started on September 22, 2019.

Dr. McConnell is a principal geologist of Geological Survey Ireland. Although his usual projects deal with materials too old for Carbon-14 dating, the analysis will be useful in his future research endeavors.

“Recently, I have become interested in post-glacial landscape evolution in western Ireland and, in particular, the interplay of climate change, peat bog growth, forest decline and human settlement at a lake-shore site.  This prize from Beta Analytic will get me started on turning ideas into research,” Dr. McConnell says.
