Field Training and Research Program at Meteor Crater

Barringer Meteorite Crater, Arizona
September 26- October 4, 2020

The Field Training and Research Program at Meteor Crater is a week-long opportunity to study Barringer Meteorite Crater, Arizona, more popularly known as Meteor Crater. The goal of the filed camp will be to introduce students to impact crater processes and provide an opportunity to assist with a research project at the crater. Skills developed during field camp should better prepare students for their own thesis studies in impact cratered terrains, whether they be on Earth, the Moon, Mars, or some other solar system planetary surface.

This field camp is being organized under the auspices of the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute, which is designed, in part, to train a new generation of explorers for the Moon and beyond.
