successful third-year field school in the Okanagan!

May 28, 2018
UBC geology and geological engineering students complete another successful third-year field school in the Okanagan!  The Oliver field station has been in operation for 50+ years and more than 5000 undergraduate students have been trained in aspects of geological field mapping, a key skill for all professional geoscientists.  Over 3 remarkably hot and sunny weeks, the 40 students were immersed in the geology and tectonics of the Okanagan Valley and surrounding mountains.
