Rocky Mountain Field Ecology & Geology
July 3 to 18, 2009
This course is designed for the MES program (open to non-MES students by permission of the instructor).
It is a two-week intensive field course in the geology, natural history, and ecology of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, which comprises a range of environments from the mile-high semi-deserts of intermontane basins to the alpine tundra of the Beartooth Plateau above 12,000 feet.
The program is based at the Yellowstone-Bighorn Research Association (YBRA) field station on the northeast flank of the Beartooth Mountains near Red Lodge, Montana. The course includes day trips from the field station as well as overnight visits to sites within Yellowstone National Park. Pre-trip classes will be held online before the trip to ensure that all students are adequately familiar with basic principles of field-based natural science.
