New Zealand: Geology of New Zealand Field Camp

New Zealand Field Camp
Start Date
December 28, 2021
End Date
January 13, 2022

DEADLINE: September 15, 2021

  • Three Credits - December 28, 2021 - January 13, 2022 
  • Four Credits - December 28, 2020 - January 18, 2022

Our home for the duration of the camp is Taranaki, North Island, New Zealand.  From here, we will examine through three mapping projects the Neogene development of sedimentary basins and their fill due to the complex interaction of the Australian and Pacific plate boundary.  With satellite visits to the Wellington and Wairarapa fault zones, karsted topography and the glowworm caves of Waikato, and UNESCO world heritage site Mount Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe of the Taupo volcanic zone, our understanding of the complex and diverse geology of New Zealand will grow.
