Calvin College Student Studies Parabolic Sand Dunes
The Detroit Free Press reports that Calvin College student and Saginaw native Melinda Campbell studied how the wind affects the growth and erosion of parabolic sand dunes (dunes blown into crescent shapes) at P.J. Hoffmaster State Park near Muskegon and has been invited to present her findings to the Geological Society of America. Campbell's work also will create a new online information center, the Lake Michigan Coastal Dune Web site, likely to be launched in mid-October by Calvin's geology department.
