Teaching and research: Jack teaches field methods, geomorphology, quaternary geology, hydrogeology, co-teaches the graduate seminar, and takes on an occasional service course. He has served as Graduate Program Director as well as Department Head, but is happiest with just teaching and research. He is a recognized expert on Pleistocene lake beds, especially the 'unabridged version' of the Great Salt Lake, the Pleistocene Lake Bonneville. His students have worked with ancient lake sediments and done geologic mapping in other parts of Utah.
