A week-long exploration...

of Glacier National Park begins today with an early departure from campus.  The field class will examine Precambrian metasedimentary rocks that are spectacularly exposed in the park, and study the effect of more recent glacial processes on the changing landscape. This course will also provide an opportunity to observe and compare mid-elevation to alpine plant and animal communities on both sides of the continental divide.  I'll provide a re-cap, with pictures, on our return.
