GEOS WT Field Trip - Geology of Southern & Central California

Half Dome in Yosemite National Park.

January 3, 2012

Dr. Jim Mills and Dr. Tim Cope are preparing to co-lead a Winter Term field trip (Jan 4-25, 2012) to study the geology of various areas of central and south-central California, including the Sierra Nevada, San Francisco Bay, Monterey Bay, and Mojave desert regions. The trip begins and ends in Las Vegas, Nevada. Students will not only learn about how the geology of California fits into a global plate tectonic perspective, but they also will gain considerable insight into the culture, economy, and natural history of California.
