Preparing for Fieldwork!

Welcome to my fieldwork blog! I'm a grad student at Columbia University, and I get to spend Tuesdays with the 8th graders at the Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School. I will use this blog to keep in touch with these all-star students while I'm in the field.

Bangladesh is the most densely populated country in the world, and there's a fault along the northern border that may have produced huge earthquakes in the past. By collecting data and observations about this fault, we can improve our understanding of how it deforms, how long it has been active and what sort of destruction it can cause.

On January 3rd I depart for five weeks of fieldwork in Bangladesh and India.
I hope you'll follow along as I explore the geology of Bangladesh and eastern India!

Please add your questions in the comment section to help inspire my future blog posts!
