Learn about our 2022-2023 adventures:
A two-week winter interim trip to New Zealand, taught by Dru Germanoski, professor of geology, Tamara Carley, associate professor of geology, and Christa Kelleher, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, explores the interdisciplinary nature of environmental science and intends to help students develop a strong understanding of how natural and developed environments come together, focusing on geology, water, climate, and life.
During the winter interim, twenty students studied geological processes, atmospheric and oceanographic phenomena and biological evolution in Ecuador, led by David Sunderlin, associate professor and department head of geology, and Lawrence Malinconico, associate professor of geology and director of the Tech Clinic.
