Global Field Courses - Iceland

In May 2016, 16 students and three faculty members of the Department of Environmental Earth Sciences travelled to Iceland to study geology for 10 days. The students climbed volcanoes, walked on a glacier, sailed past icebergs, scampered behind waterfalls, tiptoed past hot springs and geysers and stood on the rift boundary that separates the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. They also examined traditional Icelandic folklore and society, visited a modern geothermal power plant and explored Reykjavik’s attractive city culture.
