GEOG 310 - Physical Geography Field Course

All your years of learning in the classroom are the setup for the immersive field experience offered by this course. Set in one of BC’s primary ecozones, this course provides in-depth experience of the environment and the tools/techniques that physical geographers use to measure it. On any given day you may be mapping ice-marginal channels, analyzing soils, assessing water quality, mapping groundwater flow, or sampling tree-rings at a variety of sites near the field camp. The course is designed to give students opportunities to problem-solve and gain experience working in large and small group settings, building towards a cohort-based final project. Recommended to anyone interested in fieldwork in geography, earth and environmental science, water science, natural resource management, or anyone who wants to know more about the natural world.
