class field trips are back!

After a long hiatus, the field trips for Stratigraphy & Basin Analysis (EARTH 467) are back!!

The last trip was in April 2019. Even though the class was last taught in Winter 2020, we went remote before the field trips.

But with classes back in-person this semester we were determined to get into the field — and we did. Twice! The first was overnight trip to western Ohio in October to check out the Ordovician and Silurian Stratigraphy. We had another trip to Grand Ledge MI to explore and describe the Pennsylvanian strata and fossils. It was so so good to get out again into the field. This picture is of the class on the Ohio trip — at Charleston Falls where we met up with  Dr. Zelalem Bedaso (Univ Dayton) who gave us a tour of the area.
