JSU-UW Field Course, 2013

In June 2013 we initiated a collaboration with Jackson State University in Mississippi, as part of the NSF-EPSCoR grant that established the Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics (WyCEHG).  The collaboration centers around a two-week course on "ecohydrogeophysics" that ran in June 2013.  

In the near-surface geophysics module of the course, we collected, analyzed and interpreted seismic refraction, electrical resistivity, and ground-penetrating radar data, working in a watershed in the Laramie Range and a glacial till deposit in the Snowy Range.  This page shows some pictures of the group, the work, and the results.

Next year (2014) we intend to run a similar joint field course, this time in Mississippi.
