The summer geology Field Camp run by the School of Earth Sciences at The Ohio State University has been in operation for over 70 years!  We consider our Field Geology course to be a ‘capstone’ experience for our geology majors, as it provides a unique environment for field-based research experiences for students and faculty.

This course applies classroom principles to real geological problems, integrates concepts traditionally ‘compartmentalized’ in discrete courses, affords repeated practice in constructing interpretations from limited data, provides a grasp of the spatial and temporal scale of geological processes, and examines controversial geological models that form the basis for future research problems.

We welcome students from other universities to attend our Field Camp
