GEOL 373 Regional Geology: New Zealand

New Zealand, with Chris Connors and Stephen Ball '16, Spring 2018

In this course, students study the regional geology of New Zealand. This remarkably geologically diverse land allows students to learn about coastal and neotectonic geomorphology, structural geology and tectonics, glacial geology, glaciology, volcanology, metamorphic petrology, and stratigraphy, through hands-on direct exposure to beautiful examples available at the surface inNew Zealand. More than one student has called this "the trip of a lifetime."

Prerequisite: for geology majors
