CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Three geoscientists from Southern Illinois University Carbondale are among those from around the nation invited to present their research results at the 116th annual meeting of the Geological Society of America.

The organization will host a four-day conference Nov. 7-10 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. An estimated 6,200 geoscientists will attend the event.
