Dr. Marli Miller, University of Oregon
Author of the New Edition of Roadside Geology of Oregon (2014)
Dr. Miller's research emphasizes the use of small-scale structures to reconstruct the structural and kinematic histories of high strain zones. She is especially interested in the transition from brittle to ductile behavior in these zones at meso- to microscopic scales. Much of Marli's work is in Death Valley, California where she is also involved with tectonic interpretations.
About Roadside Geology of Oregon, Second Edition (Amazon Review) "Geologist, photographer, and author Marli Miller has written a completely new second edition based on the most up-to-date understanding of Oregon s geology. [Dr. Miller's] spectacular photographs showcase the state’s splendor while also helping readers understand geologic processes at work. Roadside Geology of Oregon, Second Edition, is a must-have for every Oregon resident, student, and rockhound alike."

Fossils are protected resources at ground-disturbing construction sites on public lands in the United States. A matrix of federal, state, and county laws require the retrieval of fossil objects that might be used for display, research or teaching . Sheila Alfsen will speak on her experiences in salvage paleontology industry, working in the states of the western United States.
