Baraboo, WI

The hills and rocks around Baraboo, WI provide an amazing opportunity to study features within the rocks that tell us of past environments and tectonic settings.  Students in Lisa Lamb’s Fundamentals of the Lithosphere II course (GEOL 360) record structural data, examine sedimentary features and practice identifying rocks.  We learn of past glacier movements and how they have shaped the land we see today.  Students return to the classroom, enter their data into a geological software package and use it to conduct a structural analysis.
