WVU Geology Faculty Develops Virtual Lab
When the coronavirus began to spread around the world in early 2020,
West Virginia University Department of Geology and Geography's Graham Andrews
knew he needed to act fast. He already had 3D photography software and a drone
on hand for a volcanology research project. But with some quick thinking and the
help of five students, an idea was born -- a virtual geology lab.

Geology graduate student unlocking the history of life on Earth.
Growing up as a loyal fan of “Jurassic Park” in a family of nature lovers, geology
student Sam Ocon always knew she wanted to be a paleontologist. Today, she
is fulfilling her dream of studying invertebrate paleontology. Her research on
the evolution of horseshoe crabs was selected for presentation at the Future Leaders
of Paleontology session of the Geological Society of America’s 2020 annual meeting,
held virtually last month.
Medicine and The Horseshoe Crab
Horseshoe crabs have been around for 450 million years — nearly unchanged. Their
blood has helped the medical world make some fascinating discoveries. Hear
West Virginia University Department of Geology and Geography student Sam Ocon
discuss these unique creatures in the latest episode of
NPR's Short Wave.
