Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all Keck Geology Consortium 2020-21 research experiences are suspended until summer 2021.
Welcome to the Keck Geology Consortium
The Keck Geology Consortium consists of seventeen liberal arts colleges focused on enriching undergraduate education through the development of high-quality research experiences. Each summer, with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Consortium offers a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program to engage undergraduate students in four- to five-week field and laboratory research projects in the earth sciences. Advanced students continue their summer research projects during the following academic year using cutting-edge laboratory techniques. All students are encouraged to participate in a professional conference. The Keck Geology Consortium is currently administered through Macalester College.
Funding for this REU site is provided by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Earth Sciences, located in Alexandria, VA, to the Keck Geology Consortium (NSF-REU Award No. 1659322).

Keck Program Blog
The goals of this blog are (1) to raise the visibility of Keck Geology Consortium programs, (2) to provide Keck research projects with a venue for communicating the process and results of science, and (3) to foster student learning about communicating science to the general public. We invite contributions to the blog from project students, faculty and staff. Submissions will undergo brief review before posting.
For someone who’s deathly afraid of drowning, scuba diving was NOT on my bucket list of things to do. But I always had a fascination for the ocean sciences
Storms come up fast on you in Ambergris Caye. One moment you can be engulfed by sun, surrounded by crystal clear, turquoise waters, and the next you can be thrown into a violent thunderstorm that beats the water unmercifully with torrents of rain.
Would they listen to me? NOPE. Would they respect my “authority”? NOPE. Would they snark at me and think of me as a huge dork? YUP.
We were situated underneath a bridge which was frequented by hikers, so throughout the day people would stop and stare, prompting us to greet them and strike a conversation. Everyone we spoke to was super excited to hear about what we were doing and often asked intriguing questions. It was amazing to connect with so many individuals, to the point where knowledge of our work was being spread throughout the Many Glacier area.
