About the Author:

Claudia Owen is the lead faculty member of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Lane Community College. She holds a B.S. in Geology from Stanford University, an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Geology from University of Washington. Claudia's interests rest in climate change, geological resources, and metamorphic rocks. At Lane Community College, she teaches introductory geology and environmental science courses such as Rocks and Minerals, Earth's Dynamic Interior, Terrestrial Environment, Atmospheric Environment, and Global Climate Change. She also teaches classes at University of Oregon in environmental geology, surface processes, and national park geology. Her work with students in lab courses she has taught for over 20 years has allowed her to explore her interest in science education through laboratory exercises. She began working on EARTH LAB with her co-authors, Diane and Gren, at Florida International University while teaching at the companion Biscayne Bay Campus where she headed the Geology program and taught a number of lecture and lab courses.
