Field experience examining modern and ancient coastal environments. Course rotates annually among three field environments. A 4-5 day field trip during the second half of the semester will be conducted to one of the three field areas each year.

Paleozoic Coastal Environments - Kentucky and West Virginia: This course will examine Paleozoic fluvial, deltaic and coastal sedimentary rocks.  A 4-day field experience will explore ancient examples of coastal/deltaic environments formed in epicontinental seas of the Paleozoic that are accessible through road and river cuts in West Virginia and Kentucky.  Easy access and extensive outcrop exposures provide a remarkable 3D perspective of preserved coastal sedimentary sequences.
