2018 RM Cell

Hello FOP’ers,

Joel Pederson (contact info below) has provided some basic information (in Oct. 2017) about the trip.

The 2018 Rocky Mountain FOP will be in the region of Moab, Utah.

“The foci will be on landscape evolution and salt-tectonic-geomorphology, but I will be asking several others to lead a stop here and there. I think I will try to base the trip out of the BLM campgrounds at Big Bend, upstream from Moab on the Colorado River.”

Hosts from Utah State University, Geology:
Joel Pederson, James Mauch, Andy Jochems, Tammy Rittenour, Michael Turley

More science help and stop leaders:
Greg Balco (Berkeley Geochron), Jessica Castleton (Utah Survey), Paul Geimer (UofU), Tessa Harden (USGS), Alan Hidy (Livermore/CAMS), Kendra Murray (UofMichigan), Pete Reiners (UofA), Stuart Thomson (UofA), John Weisheit (Living Rivers)

The confirmed dates are October 12-14!
