This course will cover the geology and tectonic history of the Hudson Valley of New York State by intensive field study of selected rock outcrops from New York City to Saratoga Springs.

This course will meet all day, for eight days, over a two-week span of time. It's taught entirely in the field, rain or shine, and will require moderately-strenuous hiking and rock scrambling at times. Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor. 3 hrs. lect.
