History, geology, and society converge to make the field trips for the 2006 Geological Society of America meeting in Philadelphia a unique and memorable experience for participants.

Students, spouses, and interested guests are cordially encouraged to attend these GSA field trips. The trips this year offer a wide range of technical content and physical rigor. Interested participants are encouraged to read the trip summaries carefully and contact trip leaders for specifics, and should also be prepared for a variety of weather conditions. Trips are one to three days in duration and are led by active field researchers.

If you register for only a field trip, you must pay a nonregistrant fee of US$40 in addition to the field trip fee. This fee may be applied toward meeting registration if you decide to attend the meeting.

Trip fees include transportation during the trip and a guidebook. Other services, such as meals and lodging, are noted by the following symbols: B—breakfast, L—lunch, R—refreshments, D—dinner, ON—overnight lodging.

All trips begin and end at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia unless otherwise indicated. Upon return, some post-meeting trips can stop at the Philadelphia International Airport to discharge participants who have evening flights or would prefer to spend the night in a hotel closer to the airport. Trip itinerary details will be provided upon registration and can also be obtained directly from the field trip leaders; however, participants are cautioned against scheduling any tight travel connections with field trip return times, as those times are estimates and delays in the field may occur. For a list of hotels near the airport, contact Mollie VanOtterloo, +1-303-357-1060.
