Field Studies in Volcanology
University of New Mexico - Los Alamos National Laboratory
10th offering of the Volcanology Summer Field Course
July 25 – August 15, 2011
Field exercises, complemented by evening lectures, cover various techniques used in field investigations of volcanic rocks, including applications to studies in volcanology, petrology, economic geology, and geothermal systems.  Mapping and stratigraphic exercises emphasize understanding the nature of volcanic eruption processes and the stratigraphic development of volcanic terranes.  Field exercises are conducted in the Miocene-Quaternary Jemez Mountains volcanic field (including Valles Caldera) in north-central New Mexico.  Field course participants are based at the Valles Caldera Field Station.  Exercises include study of lava flows, pyroclastic rocks, and derivative sediment over the compositional range from basalt to rhyolite.  Studies in hydrothermally altered rock and sampling of geothermal fluids and gases are also included.  Exercises include field trips to El Malpais, Shiprock Diatreem and a 3-day whitewater raft trip and exercise in White Rock Canyon on the Rio Grande.
Estimated costs: $ 2700 which includes tuition for 4 credits (graduate or undergraduate) and course fee which covers room, board, transportation during the course and raft trip.
