Geosciences Field Camp


\\
The goals and purpose of Field Camp are to give students the opportunity:

  • to travel outside of the East Tennessee region
  • to see things (rocks, landforms, processes, structure) in situ
  • to complete a research project and to visit the location on which the research was completed
  • to fulfill a possible field camp requirement for geology students going onto graduate studies
  • integrate students and faculty from both geography and geology
