    Notes from the Field: OSU Field Camp Post No. 2

    This week, Ohio State University students mapped their first area: South Ephraim Canyon. We were split into groups of three and learned to map contacts and marker beds for units within the Colton Formation in Utah. We also made comprehensive unit descriptions and a cross section based off the attitudes and locations of rock outcrops we collected in the field. At the end of the week, we took an overnight camping trip to the Alta/Little Cottonwood Canyon area to see igneous and metamorphic outcrops and map out unit contacts. We all still have high spirits and are definitely getting in better shape!  Click in the title to view photos.

    Notes from the Field: OSU Field Camp Post No. 1

    This summer, 34 students from Ohio State University arrived in Ephraim to participate in the school’s annual “Field Camp”. We arrived in Ephraim on June 8 and have just completed our first week exploring the geology of central Utah. We have learned mapping skills using Brunton compasses and have already taken an overnight camping trip to Capitol Reef National Park. This field camp is our first field experience and we are excited to keep enhancing our geology skills and seeing the structures we learned in class. Click on the title to see a few pictures.  More to follow as the adventure continues!
