We collect & analyze data on karst, glacial, slope, and fluvial processes and landforms on several field trips in the vicinity. Processes and landforms beyond our field trip range including tectonic, volcanic, coastal and glacial landforms will also be studied. Skills learned may include using air photos, topographic maps, DEMs, geologic maps, collecting orientation data with a compass, collecting survey data with a total station, google earth, excel, modeling slope stability with SLOPE/W.
