Welcome to The Outcrop, the alumni magazine for the Department of Geoscience (formerly Geology and Geophysics), the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Please send the editor Mary Diman (email) your alumni news (mention The Outcrop in the subject line), or by U.S. mail or fax (608-262-0693) and we will publish your 2017 news and updates in the 2017-18 edition.
The alumni newsletter has been published for over 30 years. It was initiated in 1970 “at the urging of the then-chairman, Sturges Bailey,” according to Bob Dott in his 1999 article, “The Many Faces of The Outcrop.” (downloads a 104k pdf) Dott’s article also describes the very earliest Outcrops, originally created by graduate students, and begun in 1902. These colorful early volumes are one-of-a-kind scrapbooks of department history and are preserved in the University Archives.
