John W. Wells (M.A., 1930, Ph.D., 1933), professor of geology from 1948-1973, discovered that corals can be used to determine past rotational speeds of the Earth and that the planet has been slowing down. His research spurred a remarkable increase in similar research studies and lead to discoveries in the changes of the orbital patterns of the Earth and moon over geologic time.
