Housing consists of hotels, motels, and campgrounds/camping style accommodations.
You are responsible for making your own travel arrangement to Australia and back. The program officially begins in Adelaide and ends in Melbourne. You will travel by bus to field sites.
Students conduct field exercises during the day and present their observations and interpretations during evening class sessions. This course is designed for advanced Geoscience majors and involves exercises in geologic mapping, data collection, and other field observations.
This course (GEOL4725) satisfies one of the two required upper division field classes required for the geology major offered through Geological Sciences. The class takes place entirely in the field in southern Australia.
The program is directed by instructor Lon Abbott of the Department of Geological Sciences. He chooses program participants, leads pre-departure programming, co-teaches the course with faculty from the University of Wollongong, and acts as the resident director in Australia. Instructor Abbott provides expertise on the tectonic evolution of the Australian plate. He conducted his Ph.D. and post-doctoral research on the modern northern plate boundary in Papua New Guinea and is currently conducting research, in collaboration with CU’s Assoc. Prof. Rebecca Flowers, on the evolution of Queensland’s Great Escarpment.
The director is available in case of emergency. Faculty at the University of Wollongong are in charge of all logistical aspects of the program and will also be available in case of emergency.
