A fantastic subject involving a field trip to New Zealand for 10 days in February. There are pre-field trip lectures which set the scene for the subject and a (straightforward) assignment to kick you off. Then you drive around NZ looking at awesome landscapes and studying the formations within them, relating to the past glacial history. We paid separately for a helicopter flight and landed on the Fox Glacier, which was amazing. Post-field trip, were interesting guest lecturers, and a Field Report, which was difficult to grasp the understanding of but a good exercise. Two computer based practicals help with data analysis. Russell Drysdale is a boss- super guy who runs the subject.
