GEOL 406 (undergraduate) or 606 (graduate) - Field Studies: Volcanology (4 credits)
Students will learn to identify, map and interpret volcanic features in the High Lava Plains of Central Oregon. They will also learn to make a detailed topographic map using modern surveying equipment.
The group will be camping in tents for this segment. Be prepared to live in a tent for 2 weeks! Large tents with tables will be provided for group cooking, equipment storage, and working on maps at night. We will have a camp cook, and all equipment and utensils for meals will be provided. Students should bring their own tent, sleeping bag and pad, towel, and plenty of warm clothig. See the Equipment List for details.
Students are advised that work will be physically strenuous and will involve hiking on steep and irregular terrain, generally during hot weather. Graduate students will synthesize the results of field work and submit summary maps and/or a report within two weeks after we return from the field.
More information for this course will be posted soon.
