This program is organized as embedded travel associated with GEOG 496: Modeling Environmental Processes in Dynamic Glacial Landscapes.
This program will finalize data collection efforts spanning 6 years, mostly recently with the 12-student embedded travel in 2016 and 2017 EMS CAUSE program.
Specific activities include downloading and retrieving groundwater monitoring instruments, mapping subsurface features in the soil, and developing virtual reality content for teaching, outreach, and student engagement in partnership with Penn State Chorophronesis (Director: Alex Klippel).
The leaders of the program (Michael Nassry and Denice Wardrop) have led previous trips to this research site using the same guide, transportation, and lodging itinerary as this program during the 2016 and 2017 academic years.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must contact the program leader.
