As you may or may not know, the main change to the London NERC DTP California field course this year is that it is has been predominantly student-led. Since October 2015, student representatives and staff have taken part in weekly Skype meetings to decipher the complex logistics of running the California field class, and I have been lucky(?) enough to take part in these meetings as the representative for the “Past Life and Environments” research theme. With guidance from staff, DTP students have designed and created the 10-day itinerary, booked accommodation, arranged entry to National Parks, organised food stops, liaised with overseas colleagues and even (brace yourself) appointed a student Health and Safety representative to cover the important and extensive risk assessment!
