Jennifer Ann Palermo

Jennifer Ann Palermo, daughter of Mark Palermo and Patricia Palermo of Saugus, presented the results of her independent geologic research at the Geological Society of America’s annual convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, on November 6. Her paper, titled “A Multiproxy Analysis of Environmental Change from Pineo Pond, Deblois, Maine, Since the Late Pleistocene,” studied the post-glacial stratigraphy of Pineo Pond to reconstruct environmental conditions over the late Pleistocene and Holocene epochs. It was funded by the American Chemical Society, the National Science Foundation and the Salem State University Research Advisory Committee. Jennifer also served as a registration ambassador at the annual meeting. She is a senior geological sciences major.
