Science brought University of Wyoming geochronologist Kevin Chamberlain to Siberia,
but it was the Russian people and culture that impressed him the most.
Chamberlain, a member of UW’s Department of Geology and Geophysics faculty, is part of a five-scientist international team recruited to help Tomsk State University (TSU) design and install a Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry facility.
Chamberlain, along with the Canadian and TSU scientists, has been awarded a grant from the Russian government to study Siberian rocks potentially associated with a mass extinction event.
