Field supervision for the course is normally offered during the first two weeks of May for students finishing their third year of study in an Earth Sciences program. Final maps and reports are due on the last day of the field school. This course will provide students with general skills in: 1) orientation and map reading; 2) use of GPS and air photography; 3) traverse and mapping techniques; 4) field structural analysis; and 5) technical report writing.
