GEG 4000 Tropical Field Research (6 units)
The GEG 4000 course is scheduled to run July 14-28, 2024 in Zanzibar. Please contact professor Anders Knudby for information.
Students enrolled in a major or honours bachelor's degree must take two field courses. The first of these, GEG/ENV 2918 is mandatory for all our students. For their second field course students can do any of the GEG or ENV 4th year field course. You would like to do even more field courses? Students may, if they wish, take several national or international courses.
During this 2-week long course (6 course units) you will learn how to combine field data collection with GPS, GIS and Remote Sensing technology to study spatial ecology on land and in the water. Also, you will study the cultural heritage of this island which has been at the crossroad of many different cultures for the past centuries. You will discover Zanzibar, its natural coastal environment and rich cultural heritage.
Dates: This course typically takes place in the summer but is offered on alternating years with GEG4001 and GEG4100. For more information send an email.
