Twelve UNT students accompanied by Dr. Harry Williams embarked on yet another British Isles field trip just a few days ago. On July 10th, the crew made it to Dartmoor, England (home of the Hound of the Baskervilles), where they learned about stream morphology and then hiked to a nearby tor (rocky hilltop).
But, wait, this field journey has only just begun. Together with former faculty member, Dr. Don Lyons, the group will spend a total of three weeks visiting five sites - Plymouth (England), Cork (Ireland), Galway (Ireland), Bangor (Wales) and Edinburgh (Scotland). At each site, the group will learn various field techniques in both human and physical geography, get a sense for local culture, and simply have fun. Even better, many of the students will get credit as part of this adventure.
