-Trip to Baraboo, WI
This was a trip for a structural geology class in which we visited many stops (including an abandoned quarry and state park) to identify rock types, measure strike and dip with Brunton compasses, and identify bedrock, lineations, and ripple marks to aid in the eventual interpretation of the Baraboo Syncline. Mild hiking was involved. Working in groups, we sketched and compiled data, interpreted the geologic story and then graphed our strike/dip data on a digital stereonet for analysis.
-Trip to Devonian Fossil, IA
A paleontology trip, learning about the history and preservation of aquatic Devonian fossils. Sketching and paleoenvironment interpretations were completed.
-Mazon Fossil Beds, IL
A personal trip on which I was educated about Mazonia fauna and flora and collected nodules in the creek water. At home, I used a freeze and thaw method to open the specimens for examination.
