Discover geology fundamentals as applied to the fossil record, by land and by canoe! Geologist and research associate Bob Raynolds will guide you through the basics of stratigraphy, sedimentology, geological mapping, and dating techniques, and how to complete a field report. The course includes two full-day field trips, the first of which introduces you to the Denver Basin and to Front Range structure and stratigraphy. The second trip will offer a unique experience to explore the geology of Upper Colorado River by canoe. Students will have the opportunity to paddle down the river as Raynolds provides a lesson about the spectacular surroundings. Paleontology 101 is a prerequisite for this course.
Field trips: July 26, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and August 2, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.
