WEEKEND FIELD TRIPS ON O‘AHU

Geology is a field science, and even though it means giving up a weekend day, it is important for GG101L students to get outside and see real geology in person

SE O‘ahu: The classic field trip to see Ko‘olau, Honolulu series rejuvenation vents, giant landdslides,

and erosion.

North Shore:

We visit Kūkaniloko, paleo-environments at Mokulēia, Waimea, and Lā‘ie, and coastal erosion at Kualoa.

Wai‘anae: We look at the structure and erosion of the old volcano, and paleo-environmental indicators from higher stands

of the ocean.

Lē‘ahi: Sometimes with the assistance of GG305, we make a geologic map along the lower makai slopes of Lē‘ahi.

 Āina Haina: Along with students in the Geologic Hazards course (GG130), we map landslide features in a nearby neighborhood.

Waipao: We learn about geologic, hydrologic, and cultural features in a place that is replicating life in pre-contact Hawai‘i.
