ABROAD

ABOUT

The Geology Abroad program is designed for students who want to learn about Earth's history in a natural laboratory. With its breathtaking glaciated volcanoes and mountains, vast coastline, Amazon basin, and frequent landslides, the geology of Ecuador is varied and complex. Ecuador is largely composed of volcanic terrain all in such a close proximity, making it the perfect setting for students to dive in to field work.

Visit a country that has been repeatedly transformed by ice and fire. Apply your theoretical knowledge during expeditions where you will observe diverse environments. Learn about hazard monitoring methods and how geoscientists communicate their discoveries. Marvel at nature's beauty and take time for personal reflection. 

Educational Highlights

↝ Engage in field study exercises at volcano Tungurahua and practice the fundamentals of field work
↝  Hike Cotopaxi, one of the tallest active volcanoes on Earth, and study the different types of deposits, including those from pyroclastic flows, from past eruptions
↝ Learn about the Geophysical Institute of Ecuador's work in volcanic risk monitoring and eruption emergency plans





↝ Visit the crater of Pululahua, learn about the magnitude of its eruption, and see the town that now lives in the crater
↝ Hike Chimborazo, the highest point on Earth from Earth's center, and learn about its volcanic activity and avalanches
↝ Visit local communities to better observe the relationship they have with the environment and hear stories about how people are impacted by Earth's processes 
↝ Grow into globally-engaged scientists
