In May, the Jackson School of Geosciences’ Marine Geology and Geophysics Field Course travelled to Port Aransas to gather data on coastal processes in and around Corpus Christi Bay. The class included several field course firsts, including use of a landing craft for deploying instruments in the bay’s shallows, a LIDAR-equipped drone, and extra days… Continue Reading Extended Field Course Helps Students Gain New Insights into Texas Coastal Geology
When London Darce learned that the 2021 UT Marine Geology and Geophysics field course was going ahead, they jumped at the chance to make up for experiences they’d missed when the class was canceled early in the coronavirus pandemic. “Hands-on fieldwork is vital, it’s what the geosciences are all about,” Darce said. Darce, who is… Continue Reading Back in the Field: Marine Geology and Geophysics Field Course Returned in 2021
Scientists from The University of Texas at Austin will embark from Galveston on April 14 in search of sunken treasure that holds the key to protecting Texas from storms and rising seas: sand. About 80% of Texas’ Gulf shoreline is critically eroded, and the state is running out of easily accessible sand to rebuild and… Continue Reading UT Begins Offshore Search for Sand Resources to Protect Texas from Coastal Erosion
The Marine Geology and Geophysics Field Course needs your help to raise $10,000 and train next year’s class of student geoscientists like Sophie Goliber. Make your gift today at hornraiser.utexas.edu/supportMGG For Sophie Goliber, the Marine Geology and Geophysics Field Course was an opportunity to experience how to collect data in the field, learn how to… Continue Reading We’re Doing It For The Science!
Each Maymester (between spring and summer semesters), the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) at the Jackson School of Geosciences, offers a three-week field course that provides hands-on instruction in the collection and processing of marine geological and geophysical data, including a week conducting at-sea investigations of coastal processes in the Gulf of Mexico.… Continue Reading UT’s Marine Geology and Geophysics Field Course Needs Your Help
