National Earth Science Week (ESW) 2013 encourages people everywhere to explore the natural world and learn about the geosciences. The Nevada Bureau of Mines & Geology (NBMG), University of Nevada, Reno; Desert Research Institute (DRI); and Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) welcome you to participate in the sixteenth annual Earth Science Week field trip. In keeping with the National ESW theme, “Mapping Our World,” this year’s trip will focus on identifying rocks and minerals, then mapping the geology around the NBMG office on the DRI campus. You’ll be able to collect volcanic rocks and several minerals that are characteristic of the hydrothermal (geothermal) alteration associated with volcanoes that were active in the Reno area about 16 million years ago.
