Geomorph fieldtrip to SAFL and St. Croix

Posted on October 5th, 2010 by

Last weekend, 26 students accompanied Prof. Triplett on a 2-day Geomorphology fieldtrip.  They learned about experimental geomorphology at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory at the University of Minnesota on Friday, then camped at William O’Brien State Park on the St. Croix River.  On Saturday, they saw fluvial and glacially-constructed landscapes as they traveled south along the river; in the picture above, they had just picnicked at Pioneer Park in Stillwater, overlooking the ~10,000-year old natural lake (Lake St. Croix) that forms the terminus of the St. Croix River.
