Mineralogy Field Trip to Arkansas, November 13-16, 2003 Geology Club Field Trip to the Appalachians April 7-10, 2005 Student Shawn Courtney is measuring a stratigraphic section in southern Ohio for a Biostratigraphy class project (Fall 2011). The perfect classroom! Dr. Sarah Hanson lectures to the Field and Lab Methods class at the Germany Overlook in West Virginia (Fall 2012). Student Shawn Courtney is examining the rocks in the section he is measuring for a Field and Laboratory Methods class group project (Fall 2012). Student Jeff Young is measuring the orientation of fractures in volcanic rocks of the St. Francois Mountains in southern Missouri (Spring 2011). The Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology class hiked to the top of the Devils Honeycomb trail in the St. Francois Mountains, southern Missouri. Here, spectacular columnar jointed rocks formed as the rhyolite lava flows cooled (Spring 2011). Mineralogy class students are posing for scale at a series of folds at the Brady Mountain Dam near Hot Springs, Arkansas. Dr. Sarah Hanson is explaining to the US Field Experience class how the arches were formed from an overlook at Arches National Park in Utah (Spring 2010). The US Field Experience class spent several days hiking and studying the geology in Death Valley, CA. This photo was taken in Badwater Basin, 282 feet below sea level! (Spring 2010). Student Brent Swee takes a break from field work to enjoy the view at Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona (Spring 2012). The 2012 US Field Experience class learned about the geology at Zion National Park, Utah. Dr. Tom Muntean explains the stratigraphy and fossils that are exposed at this outcrop in southern Utah to the US Field Experience Class (Spring 2012).
