What we are all about
Living on the Edge is the field study of earthquakes, volcanoes, and other hazards where tectonic plates collide. Field studies focus on understanding the science behind natural hazards that lead to catastrophic events and subsequent loss of life. Fieldwork is aimed at recognizing hazards and understanding the processes behind the hazards. The blog chronicles the participants and their experiences in Alaska Summer 2009

The Count Down Has Started
We are excited! This summer we have 10 students (and us Prof John Garver and Prof Jaclyn Cockburn) heading to Alaska on June 19. It is a great mix of rising freshmen and rising sophomores with Geology and/or Environmental Sciences or Policy interests. As we get closer to the trip we will add a little more to our blog. Once we get to Alaska the blog will be in full swing and you will be able to see what we are up to on a fairly regular basis. In the mean time, check out the class blogs from 2007 and 2008 by clicking on the year to take you to those sites. Or check out our general class website, with highlights from the last two years here. A link to a pdf of our schedule will be posted shortly. Check back in June for a pre-trip entry.
