The Field Training and Research Program at Meteor Crater is a week-long geology field class and research project based at Barringer Meteorite Crater, Arizona, more popularly known as Meteor
Crater. The goal is to introduce students to impact cratering processes and provide an opportunity to assist with a research project at the crater. Skills developed during the field camp should better prepare the students for their own thesis studies in impact cratered terrains, whether on Earth, the Moon, asteroids, Mars, or some other solar system planetary surface.
The field camp is designed for graduate students in geology and planetary science programs, although advanced undergraduate students will be considered. U.S. and international students are eligible.
