Westminster College Field Geology
May 9 - Jun 19, 2022 Over the course of the six week course, our students will visit some of the most geologically impressive sites throughout Western North America as we travel through Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana. Our course teaches students both traditional geological field methods along with cutting-edge GIS, hydrology, and remote sensing techniques. We've crafted projects that allow our students to gain experience planning field surveys, installing, monitoring, and collecting data from instrumentation, and analyzing and presenting the data they collect themselves. Our goal is to incorporate data collected on previous Field Geology classes into the data collected each summer so that the students gain experience analyzing and interpreting long-term data sets.
Field Geology (GLY4790)
May 13 - Jun 22, 2022 Our field course will give upper level undergraduate and beginning graduate students the observational skills and experience, the interpretative framework, and the self confidence to undertake detailed field studies in a variety of geologic settings. We believe that students learn the most from hands-on experience, working daily to observe and measure geologic features and phenomena, to place these data into a larger Earth history framework, and to build hypotheses that they can test with continued work. Students are exposed to projects in which they learn and apply basic principals of stratigraphy, sedimentology, paleontology, structure, mineralogy and petrology to solving problems of varied complexity in a number of geologic settings. The field camp is located in a very scenic area of the Rocky Mountains where the Rio Grande Rift splits the Sangre de Christo and Brazos Mountains. Wheeler Peak (elevation 13,161 ft), the highest point in New Mexico, dominates the Taos Range and is clearly visible from our base camp near Taos. The historic community of Taos offers a unique mix of Hispanic, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
May 14 - Jun 22, 2022 SFA will offer a six-credit hour traveling field experience for the Summer I session with space for up to 6 students from other universities. This field course helps upper-level geology students make the all-important transition from classroom theory to real-world understanding while working in a variety of geologic settings. During the five-week course, we will use the spectacular setting of the American Southwest as a backdrop to help students explore geology in areas of compression, extension, shearing, metamorphism and volcanism.
Field Geology 1 GEOL 4375 and Field Geology 2 GEOL 4376
May 16 - Jun 5, 2022 Two three week camps that can be taken separately. The winter camp runs during winter break for three weeks, the summer from Mid-May through Early June. The winter camp teaches geomorphic and structural mapping, the May camp varies and may include Hydrology and Geophysics. GIS technology and report writing are integra.
GEOL 400 Geology Summer Field Camp
May 16 - Jun 26, 2022 The School of Geosciences at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette offers a integrative six-week (6 credits) summer geology field camp course (May 16 - June 26). Through this course, students will develop their field skills, including rock identification and description, drafting geologic maps and cross-sections, and development of their 4D thinking. The course visits geologically ideal locations (Utah, Wyoming, Montana).
Summer Field Course GEOL-4000
May 16 - Jun 21, 2022 The Summer Geology Field Course (GEOL-4000) is a 6-semester hour, capstone Geology Field experience administered by the Department of Geological Sciences at East Carolina University. The Course is conducted in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado within a geologic and tectonic setting that includes the Southern Rocky Mountains,the Colorado Plateau, the Rio Grande Rift, the Jemez Caldera, and the San Juan Mountains. The course emphasizes project based learning including: field mapping, stratigraphy and geophysics, and is designed to train students in field oriented problem solving and critical thinking that will prepare them for a professional career in the GeologicalSciences. This includes introducing students to complete project life cycles from data collection in the field, to analysis in a digital and GIS based environment and final production of scientific reports.
GEOL 441 - Field Geologic Methods II
May 16 - Jun 10, 2022 This is a 4-week, 4-credit summer field course. It will run May 16-June 10. Students go out for ~5-day stints, returning to Durango on the weekends to rest and recover. Field locations will include southern Utah and southwest Colorado.
Wasatch-Uinta Applied Digital Geosciences
May 17 - Jun 12, 2022 Modern geology careers require a working knowledge of digital technology and techniques, from pre-fieldwork planning to digital data collection to mapping in GIS programs. These skills are typically not the focus of a field-based geology field camp nor are they commonly the focus of on-line versions of field camps. Our course in applied digital field methods provides students with opportunities to develop important skills and expertise in these techniques. This course is among the first ADA accessible geoscience capstones in the US, and provides a capstone experience for both students requiring accommodations and non-traditional geology students. This course also provides valuable expertise for traditional geology students seeking additional coursework.
Summer Field Camp
May 18 - Jun 22, 2022 The Department of Geological Sciences and Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno, offers a comprehensive, capstone, five-week, six-credit summer geology field camp class. The focus of the course will be to develop advanced field skills, including rock description, generation of geologic maps, and illustrating the geometries of deformed rocks with cross-sections.
Virtual Economic Fieldcamp
May 19 - Jun 5, 2022 Students visit multiple virtual field sites using the Minecraft platform. They will learn standard field mapping techniques from measuring 3D virtual outcrops, prospect for silver veins with the industry-standard software, Leapfrog, and evaluate well logs for hydrocarbon deposits. No Minecraft experience necessary!
