Alpine Europe Department Field Trip 2015

For 15 days in August, a group of 23 G&G students and faculty traversed the European Alps and Apennines from Germany, through Switzerland, and into Italy. Led by Professor Mark Brandon, and graduate students Ross Anderson and Holger Petermann, with the help of Professors Derek Briggs and Celli Hull, the group travelled some ~3,000 km taking in the sedimentary record of Earth history preserved in the tectonic settings of these two mountain belts. –
