Turkey: Geology Field Camp

Application Deadline: December 31, 2018

The course includes preparation of stratigraphic columns, structural cross sections, and geologic maps, and completion of formal reports.  Successive projects involve greater geologic complexity, and some may emphasize geologic hazard or mineral resource assessment. Practical applications to environment-related problems, earthquake hazards, landslides, and hydrogeology may be included.

Morocco: Geology Field Camp

Application Deadline: December 31, 2018

This field camp will be focused on mapping Permian, Triassic, and Cretaceous sedimentary and igneous rocks of the Argana Basin in southern Morocco. This includes mapping stratigraphic units that record the transition from the end of Permian mass extinction and the opening of the Atlantic Ocean and Oceanic transgression during Cretaceous.

Iceland: Volcanology Field Camp

Iceland is a volcanic wonderland. This course in volcanology will explore Iceland from the south coast where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge comes ashore to the highlands near the focus of the Iceland mantle plume. Subjects that will be considered include: basaltic and rhyolitic lava flows, tephra characterization, phreatomagmatic features, subglacial volcanism, volcano monitoring and geothermal power.

China: Summer in Jinan

Spend a month studying at the University of Jinan.  Students will take two courses including a Chinese class, learn tai chi and calligraphy, stay in a furnished dorm room, eat in the UJN dining hall and enjoy recreational facilities on campus.  In addition, you can visit Beijing, the Great Wall, The Forbidden City and Mount Tai.
