Field trips may be arranged to allow us to see physical principles being demonstrated out in the "real world" or in industry. You are encouraged but not required to participate

We also offer a number of geology field courses to the Eastern Sierra Nevada, Death Valley, Colorado Plateau, Western Sierra, Canada, and even New Zealand. Although these courses are primarily geology oriented, since I may be one of the instructors for the course, you will receive extra credit in this class by enrolling in any one of these field courses.  I often conduct Star Talks during the course, and would be available to discuss Astronomy, Geology, and related Earth Sciences.  I hope some of you will take advantage of these valuable field opportunities.
