2010 Ireland


From April 21 to May 5, 2010, our group of senior undergraduates and three graduate students were taken on a two-week field course to the north of Ireland.  Leaders from Carleton were Tim Patterson and I, but the bulk of the trip was designed and led by geologists from the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland, Queens University Belfast, the Geological Survey of Ireland, the Ulster Museum, and the Marble Arch Caves.  Special thanks to Helen Roe (QUB), Mark Cooper and Garth Earls (GSNI).  The BBC (click on “BBC” to view video) did a TV interview with us, now on You Tube!  The Iceland eruption quieted down just in time for us to fly to Belfast, and did not hamper our return home - we were extremely lucky!  Here are some highlights of the trip - click HERE to see the Movie on YouTube!
