Fall Field Trip: Newfoundland

Monday, August 28, 2017 to 12:00am

Newfoundland, Canada

We are pleased to announce an EAPS field trip to Newfoundland. The trip is open to all EAPS undergraduates and graduate students. Flights, lodging, and food will be included. The trip will run from August 28th - September 4th. During the trip we will be staying at hotels and motels as opposed to camping.

The trip will focus on the geology of Newfoundland and will cross three ancient continents with stops along the way including world-famous Ediacaran fossils, ophiolites and suture zones, Snowball Earth deposits, Quaternary glacial valleys and fjords.

Prior to the field trip each participant will be responsible for preparing materials on a particular topic and will present during the trip. There will be a 3 credit course everyone will enroll in for the Fall 2017 semester.

All undergraduates are particularly encouraged to join the trip and will have first priority on available spaces.

Faculty Instructors: Kristin Bergmann, Greg Fournier & Roger Summons
Graduate Student Organizing Committee: Marjorie Cantine, Maya Stokes & Sam Goldberg
