Biology Professor Don McFarlane
Professor Don McFarlane has coauthored an article in the journal Quaternary Research. The article, "A significant middle Pleistocene tephra deposit preserved in the caves of Mulu, Borneo," describes the discovery of sediments inside caves on the island of Borneo. With collaborator Joyce Lundberg, Dr. McFarlane has found the sediment originates from ash from an ancient volcanic eruption but not from a "super eruption" in Sumatra 74,000 years ago, as previously thought. Dr. McFarlane is featured walking through a cave on the cover of the journal, vol 77, Issue 3.
