Class field trip to study the Ordovician.

We took students on a tour of Ordovician rocks in Indiana and Ohio as part of my course in the Evolution of Earth and Life (G335). The field trip combined students from IUPUI, IPFW, and the University of Cincinnati.

Return to Mahoney Lake

Our trip was a huge success in the Pacific Northwest, mainly because we had so many fantastic people helping us out.

It was great to see again our Canadian friends Nancy and Stu at the Centennial RV Park in Oliver, British Columbia. We couldn’t have accomplished anything without the amazing support of Wendy Pope from the BC Parks. Thanks ¬†also to Mark Abbott’s coring team Areile, Sofie, Sam, and MG from the University of Pittsburgh for collecting the Mahoney Lake surface cores.

I always love coming up here for research. I’m looking forward to returning again soon.
