University of Missouri: Geology Field Camp

Hosted by: University of Missouri




The University of Missouri Geology Field Camp is a six-week, six-credit field course based out of the Branson Field Laboratory in the Wind River Range, western Wyoming. Our two-part curriculum focuses on the development of practical skills and career-readiness, beginning with foundational skills and field methods, such as measuring stratigraphic sections, analysis of sedimentary facies and environments, working with topographic maps, and geologic mapping. In the final two weeks of the course, students practice experimental design, data collection, and analysis in advanced field methods, including groundwater and surface hydrogeology, seismic reflection and refraction, and subsurface basin analysis. This course includes a field trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks.
