Dr. Peter J. Saccocia

Professor of Geological Sciences
Science and Mathematics Center, Room 135

BA, Colby College
MS, PhD, University of Minnesota

"My primary interests include marine geology and geochemistry. Over the last four years I have been a member of the science team on three different oceanographic expeditions to locations that include the Kerguelen Plateau in the Southern Indian Ocean, and the Juan de Fuca Ridge in the Pacific. This work has included two dives in the deep sea submersible “Alvin” to study the organic geochemistry of hot springs on the sea floor. Quite an adventure! I have had the good fortune to involve many talented BSU geological science students on these and other research projects. The face of science has changed dramatically at BSU in recent years and the number of undergraduate research opportunities is expanding every year. It is an exciting time."
