Field Trips -- "New Mexico Springs"
New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
Albuquerque, NM
Share this event:

In our dry southwest, finding water springing from the ground is a welcome sight. Join us and explore the whats and whys of springs, why are they where they are? What causes them to be warm or cold? What minerals are carried to the surface, and what does that chemistry tell us about the geologic and hydrologic picture of the region?

We will travel to the San Ysidro area where we will do a moderate to steep hike to some springs and amazing travertine deposits. Then we will drive up the Jemez valley, stopping for lunch at a picnic area, with a final stop at Soda Dam before returning.

Dr. Crossey is Chair of the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department, UNM. Her research is in Sedimentary Geochemistry, with emphasis on the interaction of organic and inorganic constituents of sedimentary rocks. She is conducting studies on the natural springs in the Jemez  San Ysidro area, and in other areas throughout the southwest.  She earned a Ph.D. from the University of Wyoming.
