Dr. Erin Campbell-Stone directs the field course and is primarily responsible for instruction. Erin is a structural geologist with extensive field experience in a variety of geologic settings, as well as experience in the oil industry. Her current geologic research focuses on subsurface characterization for carbon sequestration, and mechanisms for accommodation of low-angle normal faulting in continental crust..
She is joined by Dr. Ron Frost, Dr. Ranie Lynds, Dr. Mark Clementz, geophysics faculty from the UWyo department of Geology and Geophysics, and several graduate student teaching assistants. Ron Frost is a petrologist at the University of Wyoming and recognized expert on the Laramie Anorthosite. Ranie Lynds is a sedimentologist specializing in fluvial systems and carbon sequestration. Mark Clementz is a paleontologist working in paleobiology and paleoecology. The geophysicists bring a wide range of expertise to the geophysics project. The graduate assistants have BS or MS degrees in geology as well as teaching and field experience. While camping, a cook will travel with the group to provide meals and assist with camp logistics. Together, the staff is able to provide a high level of professional interaction with students. The staff shares the living conditions, work sessions and recreational breaks with the students.
