Since 2006 Dr. Gourley has been a member of the Environmental Science Program at Trinity.  His expertise in geology and geographic information systems (GIS) complements the current ENVS faculty and his field based research interests will provide Trinity students with an opportunity to study geology and environmental science beyond the gates of Trinity.  His teaching style is primarily hands-on which engages students in both the lab and in the field.  Currently Jonathan is engaged in a project that examines the effect of forest clear-cutting on soils in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
