CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND–And it’s not me! Wooster geology student Andrew Collins is in a study abroad program on the South Island of New Zealand. He has promised to share with us his geological experiences now and then. Andrew recently traveled to a town called Springfield near Christchurch and visited some amazing Paleogene limestone exposures on Castle Hill. This is an extreme example of karstic weathering.
Beautiful, eh? Andrew will share more New Zealand geology with us through this blog and his own.
This summer we’ve had Wooster geologists in Alaska, the southern USA, Ohio, Israel, Iceland and Utah … and we’re only halfway through our field season. Gotta love it!
