X429s allows students to build upon concepts learned earlier in the course and take advantage of exceptional exposures of Mississippian carbonates in the field station area to complete a comprehensive sedimentological analysis of Mississippian carbonates.
The Field Station’s flagship course, Field Geology in the Rocky Mountains (EAS X429), is frequently the required capstone course for advanced college geosciences majors. Since 1950, over 5,000 students from over 200 colleges and universities have enrolled in this course. Alumni routinely credit it as a key educational ingredient in their career success because of its integrative content and how it has helped them to solve geological problems with a limited data base, as well as improve their conception of scale and 3–D geometry of complex structural morphology.
Note: This course is physically demanding. You should be in good health and capable of strenuous hiking on rugged terrain while carrying a daypack and field gear.
