Timothy Thorpe Allen, Professional Geologist

and Professor of Environmental Studies at Keene State College

I have extensive experience mapping bedrock geology throughout New Hampshire, with additional experience mapping geology in the Karakorum Mountains of northern Pakistan. I have also organized and led numerous geological field trips throughout New England as well as to Wyoming and adjacent states, and to northern Arizona and southern Utah. TongaSohkaLumba.jpg
I have a broad array of research interests from soil and sediment contamination and hydrology to "hard-rock" geology. Much of my work involves the application of geochemistry and/or geophysics to addressing environmental, hydrological, or other geological questions. I co-direct the KSC Center for Environmental BioGeoChemistry, which includes laboratory facilities and instrumentation for elemental and stable isotopic analyses of a wide range of sample types.

I served on the State of New Hampshire Board of Professional Geologists from 2000 to 2009, and have been involved with several state, regional, and national professional and scientific organizations Past clients have included town conservation commissions, a regional land conservancy, private landowners, developers, and an environmental attorney. . geo2.gif
I have been teaching courses in Environmental Geology, Hydrogeology, and Environmental Geochemistry, among other subjects at Keene State College since 1992. In addition, I have served the college in numerous other capacities.
On April 12, 2011, I was awarded the Campus Compact Presdient's Good Steward Award by Keene State College President Helen Giles-Gee, which is annually presented to "a member of the faculty, administration or staff who has contributed his or her professional expertise in service to the wider community and who has significantly advanced public service on their campus" -- see the award poster (PDF).
I received a B.A. cum laude in Geological Sciences from Harvard College (1984), and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Geology from Dartmouth College (1990, 1992).
