Two students review exposed sedimentary layers

Liz Hoekwater and Drew Koff find some channel lag deposits.

Students review deposits and write notes

Emily Constantine, Jay Barr, Bret Doverspike, and Jason Williams ponder the origin of these deposits.

Students use shovels to manipulate sand.

Drew Koff, Evan Goldstein, Jason Williams, Mike Meredith, and Adam Skarke make a 3D model of the depositional environment.

Students struggle to dig in packed earth.

Hmm, maybe next time we should try this in a spot where the trucks haven’t compacted the ground so much.
