Students and faculty from Bucknell and Purdue University met during Bucknell's spring break to participate in a week-long field experience in and around Big Bend National Park in southwest Texas. Students gained valuable experience mapping portions of Big Bend and the Marathon Fold Belt - camping and experiencing one of the last true wilderness areas in the United States.

Recent Publications and Professional Field Trips:
Bucknell Geology Professors Craig Kochel and Jeff Trop have had a paper published in the May 2012 issue of Geomorphology. Their paper: "Active processes, morphology, and dynamics of icy debris fans: landform evolution along rapidly degrading escarpments in alpine regions undergoing recent deglaciation" is based on their recent field work in Alaska and New Zealand. The article may (depending on your personal or institutional entitlements) be viewed at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.geomorph.2012.01.014
Professor Chris Daniel was one of the co-leaders for a post-meeting field trip for this year's Rocky Mountain Section of the Geologial Society of America meeting in Albequerque, New Mexico:
"A Midcrustal transect across the Yavapai-Mazatzal Transition Zone: Investigating the timing and nature of Paleoproterozoic sedimentation, deformation and regional metamorphism in north-central New Mexico". (more)
