Coursework Opportunity

The Weaubleau structure and its proximity to Springfield provides a great opportunity for students who want to participate in directed field and laboratory studies. In 2004, students in GLG 351 Photogeology have participated in field mapping exercises in part of the structure. Other undergraduates have been involved with x-ray diffractometer analyses of mineral separates. Two students have worked on impact-related cartographic projects. Others have worked in combined field and laboratory studies of the "Weaubleau Breccia." As part of a class project in remote sensing and imaging, graduate and undergraduate students are engaged in the development of a GIS of the area. Meteorite impacts are exciting projects to be involved with, so if you have such an interest, it may be possible to craft a project that meets your educational needs.

During Spring Break 2005, GLG 360, a directed field trip examined the modern carbonate
sediments of Florida Bay and the Keys, as well as Pleistocene carbonates of the Ever-
glades. One of our snorkeling dives was on West Samba Reef from the
Reef Chief of Key West.
