GEOL 111 Field Trip
Photos below are from the 20th October 2010 field trip of Steve Lundblad. Students practiced taking temperatures of lava flows that were a few days old, using a thermocouple. The group then hiked uphill to active pahoehoe, measured the temperature with a radiometer, and demonstrated viscosity with a rock hammer.
