The Short Course and Field School at the Sudbury Impact Structure is a week-long classroom and field training program based in Sudbury, Ontario. The goal of the program will be to introduce students to impact cratering processes and observe, in the field, the attributes of an immense basin-size impact structure. Sudbury is known for spectacular shatter cones, tremendously thick melt-bearing impact breccias (the Onaping Formation), and a differentiated impact melt sheet (the Sudbury Igneous Complex). Skills developed during the program will 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 Lunar Science Institute, which is designed, in part, to train a new generation of explorers for the Moon and beyond. The activity is being led by an NLSI international partner, the Canadian Lunar Research Network, and coordinated with the LPI-JSC Center for Lunar Science and Exploration.

Applications are no longer being accepted for the Sudbury Field Camp. Application Deadline Was: May 11, 2012
