University of Washington: UW brings field geology to students with ‘Virtual Field Geology’

University of Washington: UW brings field geology to students with ‘Virtual Field Geology’. “Juliet Crider, a UW associate professor of Earth and space sciences, first got a grant from the National Science Foundation to send a former graduate student and a drone to photograph an iconic Pennsylvania geological site and pilot a new approach to field geology. Her team has now completed a virtual field visit to that site, the Whaleback anticline, where decades of coal mining have exposed 300-million-year-old folds in the bedrock.”
