rganised by a young group of researches belonging to the Universitat de València, Museu Valencià d’Història Natural and Museo Paleontológico de Alpuente (Spain). Oral communications and posters about any palaeontological field will be presented through an online platform created ad hoc. The simplicity of this new format will allows for low-cost registration fees (5€) and saving travel and maintenance expenses for the delegates. This initiative aims to give international projection to the paleontological research carried out by groups with limited economic resources and promoting the participation of palaeontologists from developing countries.

2019 International Event Listing

March
13-19 February 2019 - Discover Hawaii’s Active Volcanoes February 2019 – a trip for University/College Students
Details: 
This seven-day (6 night) field trip on the Big Island of Hawaii will expand your knowledge in the field of plate tectonics, hot spot volcanism and the geologic features and hazards associated with living on an active volcano.  We will discuss volcanic edifices, eruption styles, magma evolution and see various types of lava flows, lava lakes, tree molds and lava trees, fault scarps, rifts, craters and calderas.

We will use our observations and new-found knowledge to discuss methods on how to effectively communicate geologic concepts.  We will also have time to look at modern reef development (snorkeling).  We will visit sites of natural hazards, including the 1946 & 1964 tsunamis.  

We will practice field mapping skills in volcanic environments.   Mapping activities include:

  • Mapping the edge of lava flows and looking for evidence of relative ages.
  • Mapping inside a lava tube and calculating flow volumes.
  • Mapping volcanic eruption site features and building ideas and theories on the geological history.

Cost: $US 1695 per person* (*not including airfares to/from Hilo, HI.  Twin share).
