Geology of Utah’s National Parks – GE 5130
June 14–July 1 2011
Fourteen days of field-based activities in and around the national parks and monuments of eastern Utah – areas internationally recognized for their outstanding geology. Teachers learn to use maps, compasses, GPS, rock and mineral identification, geomorphology, subsurface geology, fossils, and basic engineering principles; learn how climate, sea level, and mountain building change the earth’s landscape, and how to recognize the record of change in rocks.
