Field Trips -- Journey to the Center of the Rift: Exploring the Albuquerque Volc
Only a few American metropolitan areas have geologically young volcanoes that are nearby and easily accessible.  Join volcanologists Larry Crumpler and Jayne Aubele for an excellent introduction to volcanology. These volcanoes may be small but they illustrate many details and features that are "world-class."  A walk among the Albuquerque volcanoes also provides an overview of the Rio Grande rift; they may be on the "west side" of the city, but they actually mark the center of the rift at Albuquerque.  

Field Trip will depart at 9 a.m. from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science and return by noon to the Museum.

Larry Crumpler, Research Curator, NMMNHS, has divided his research between the study of young volcanic terrains in the southwest and the geology of Mars. He has been an advocate for the importance of volcanoes in New Mexico's landscape through numerous research publications, video productions, and popular articles, including the newly published Telling New Mexico: A New History,. He recently co-authored and designed a set of educational posters published by the Museum about the volcanoes of New Mexico; and he is currently a member of a team of volcanologists, funded by the Smithsonian, studying long lava flows in New Mexico and Hawaii.

Jayne Aubele, Adult Programs Educator, NMMNHS, is a volcanologist.  She has mapped and researched the Quaternary volcanic fields of New Mexico and the Southwest for more than 30 years  and also walked on volcanoes from Armenia to Hawaii and around the globe.  She has authored or co-authored many technical articles, video productions, and popular books/chapters about New Mexico geology, including  "Land of Volcanoes" in Albuquerque: Portrait of a Western City; and recently co-authored, with Crumpler, a set of educational posters about the volcanoes of New Mexico.
