Every rock has a story to tell, and this course with curator of earth sciences Whitey Hagadorn will help you learn how to read those stories. Whether you are trying to determine how a dinosaur bone was buried, seeking underground oil or water reservoirs, or just plain curious, you will be prepared to better decipher ancient Earth. This is a field-intensive course, with three evenings of lectures followed by three full days of on-the-rock learning using some Colorado’s spectacularly exposed sedimentary outcrops. This course is a prerequisite for Field Methods in Paleontology, and you must have completed or be concurrently enrolled in Paleontology 101 and Reading Colorado.
Field trips: Two Sundays & Saturday, May 12, 18, & 19
