GSA and ExxonMobil are excited to offer GSA Members our Annual Field Seminar in the Bighorn Basin of north-central Wyoming, which will emphasize multi-disciplinary integrated basin analysis.
GSA aims to enhance its educational program by offering a seminar concerning certain geologic aspects of the Bighorn Basin of Montana and Wyoming. The Bighorn Basin Field Program seeks to energize and enhance the education of geology students and faculty by introducing them to the breadth and challenges of integrated basin and petroleum systems analysis.
This August, undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty will participate in this field program, with all expenses covered including hotel, airfare, and meals.
Your complete application will consist of:
