Spring ENVS News

April 11 ten students in GEOL 301 Geomorphology travelled to Sitka and Kruzof Island to see the Edgecumbe Volcanic field.

They learned about volcanic landscapes and coastal geomorphology away from glacier and uplift. Students included Kristi Asplund, Nick Korzen, David Leggitt, Patrick McCormick, Cliff Miller, Nat Nichols, Martin Pelke, Nicole Roberts, David Sauer, and Emily Sheehan.

Instructor Cathy Connor gave a public lecture in Sitka about local geology. The student's air travel and boat transport to Kruzof Island was funded by a grant from the Provost's office. Connor's travel was funded by Kitty LaBounty, UAS Sitka Campus faculty who annually organizes this trip for her Sitka students.
