Explore Field Work, Past, Present, and Future

We invite you to take a journey through time, starting in field camp days of yore, stepping into current mapping examples and field camps, and traveling into the future of field geology, including planetary exploration.

See examples of equipment used in the field long ago, side-by-side with technology geologists use today—on our planet and beyond. Stop by to hear brief talks in keeping with each day’s theme. Presentations will be at 10:30 am each day.

  • Monday: The History of Field Mapping
  • Tuesday: The 2017 Field Camp Excellence Award Winner on Current-Day Field Camps
  • Wednesday: Mapping on Mars

Enjoy the display of Brunton compasses and their evolution over the years. A map by Florence Bascom will be onsite, juxtaposed with the first-ever high-resolution geologic map of one of America’s most iconic natural landmarks—both entailing painstaking processes of rather different natures.
