Dr. Stewart, retired from the U.S. Army, is a veteran of the Cold War and three foreign wars; 20+ years of experience and life-changing events make him a unique professor. His experiences in the Army in Alaska directed his interests to obtain a PhD in glacial geology and be a glacial geology/geomorphology professor from eastern Kentucky to western Texas and north to St. Lawrence University.
Dr. Stewart’s research interests are varied, covering all aspects of surface geology. Dr. Stewart has a new geomorphology laboratory, so he and his students use a variety of techniques to capture surface-geology data – from lake-and-bog cores to dendrogeomorphology and standard mapping techniques. Recent student projects have covered GIS-mapping of lobate-debris aprons on Mars (D. Baker ’08), X-Ray diffractometry of glacier-lake sediments in the High Andes, Peru (Coronado ’12), ice-flow indicators in the Juneau Icefield and the Adirondacks (Chesler ’13), geological controls on windthrown white pines in the Adirondacks (Cox ’14) and the impact of geomorphology on the Battle of Sackett’s Harbour (1813)(R. Klepetko ’11). In addition, Dr. Stewart is an avid scorpion biologist researching behavior on his self-collected scorpions from Iraq, Afghanistan, China and elsewhere.
