As part of a new NSF GeoPATH grant, Temple and Rutgers Universities are teaming to create a field experience for freshmen and sophomore college students interested in a geophysical field experience May 19th to June 3rd, 2018. Students will spend two weeks at the Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory near Penn State learning basic field methods and a variety of geophysical techniques such as ground penetrating radar, seismics, and electrical resistivity (photo) applied to critical zone research questions.
No previous geology or geophysical experience is necessary. Successful applicants will receive room and board, staying at nearby cabins, and receive a $1,000 stipend. Transportation to and from the field sites is also provided.
