Field Training and Research Program at Meteor Crater Barringer Meteorite Crater, Arizona October 6–14, 2018

APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED

The LPI-JSC Center for Lunar Science and Exploration is excited to announce a student field camp opportunity coming this fall! The Field Training and Research Program at Meteor Crater is organized under the auspices of the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), which is designed, in part, to train a new generation of explorers for the Moon and beyond.

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

The field camp is designed for graduate college students in geology and planetary science programs, although advanced undergraduate students will be considered if they have successfully completed a summer field geology program and have a demonstrated interest in impact cratering processes. U.S. and international students are eligible to apply.

The fifth edition of the program will run from October 6, 2018, through October 14, 2018. Students are responsible for transportation to and from Flagstaff, Arizona. Transportation will be provided from Flagstaff to Meteor Crater. Additional logistical details will be provided to selected participants.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: June 11, 2018
