Second Call for Participation

4th Annual Field Studies in Geography and Earth Sciences
in the Galapagos Islands, Andes Mountains and Tropical Rainforest of Ecuador
July 14 - August 6, 2002
Sponsored by Eastern Illinois University
Directed by Dr. Betty Smith
Department of Geology and Geography
School of Adult and Continuing Education

OBJECTIVES  This program will provide a cross cultural and scientific experience as participants, over a three week period of time, traverse and explore unique ecological zones along the equator. The course combines the
study of geography and earth science. Participants will study the volcanic landscape forming processes of the region and observe the impacts of these processes on topography, hydrology, soils, agriculture and settlement
patterns. Various forms of agriculture and associated problems of erosion are observed. The geography of human-land interactions are examined in the tropical rainforest of the Ecuadorian Amazon, in the high Andes Mountains, and on the Galapagos Islands located 600 miles off the coast of South America.

ITINERARY  We depart from and return to Chicago O'Hare Airport. The point of arrival in Ecuador is Quito, a city located at 9,300 feet above sea level with warm and dry spring like temperatures during the day and slightly cool temperatures in the evening. Participants explore three distinct geographic regions during the three week program: first, the landscapes and villages of the Andes Mountains; secondly, the Ecuadorian Amazon, travelling two hours by boat to the lodge, and; thirdly, the climax a five day boat and land excursion among the Galapagos Islands.

CREDIT  This is a special off-campus course that provides upper division undergraduate or graduate level semester credits at Eastern Illinois University. Participants enroll in Geography 4998 or Earth Science 4998 for 5 semester credits and may choose to enroll in an additional 3 semester credits in fall semester of related research (GEG 4996 or ESC4996).
Prerequisite for GEG/ESC 4998 is one geography or one earth science course or permission of the instructor. Ability to speak or read Spanish is not required. The instructor is fluent in Spanish.

FACULTY  Dr. Betty Smith joined the Department of Geology and Geography at Eastern Illinois University in 1995 after receiving her Ph.D. in Geography.
