Geological Excursion to Death Valley

Every other year, Columbia University Professor and Lamont-Doherty researcher Nicholas Christie-Blick, leads a group of Columbia and Barnard undergraduates on an eight-day expedition to investigate the dynamic processes that formed Death Valley’s exquisite natural beauty.

This past spring break, 19 Columbia and Barnard undergraduates participated in the Geological Excursion to Death Valley, California field course.  Students prepare for the trip by attending a series of seminars, but the real learning happens in the field.

View photos and read about their experience.
