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.

I could tell it wasn’t going to be a usual hike. First of all, unlike the trail to Iceberg, the trail was pretty void of people. This made our group feel a real intimacy with the wilderness around us. Second of all, after walking just a little bit on the trail, we came to realize that the trail had turned into one giant incline. Oof.

Mountains on the Horizon

Glacier is a place that tells a story just from looking at it’s mountains. I recommend just sitting and staring at a mountain for awhile. But honestly, you’ll end up doing it naturally. The mountains of Glacier National Park are amazing. But be forewarned, this sets the standard for any mountain view you’ll ever see…
