The Geophysics Society of Kutztown University (GSKU) is established to help students at KU gain knowledge and experience in geophysical surveying through providing service to the local community by the application of geophysical methods and education/outreach.  Additionally, this group hosts an annual seminar series within the Physical Sciences Department at KU.

If you have a project for which you would like GSKU to perform geophysical surveying or for more information about what GSKU can do for you, please contact Dr. Laura Sherrod

GSKU is a student chapter of EEGS
