Senior Field School 2021

Term has started in Geology with the Senior Field School course run in Cape Breton Island. The course is run from the Gaelic College at St. Ann's and mapping exercises are conducted in the beautiful Goose Cove area.

This year we were pleased to have Dr. Deanne van Rooyen, professor at Cape Breton University and adjunct professor at Acadia, join us to study the area.

On our traverse up Goose Cove Brook, we were joined by Ceilidh and her mistress, Laura, the local land-owner, here seen with Laura and Deanne carefully studying maps,

Goose Cove Brook is well known for its waterfalls and here Rachel and Kiersty are examining the lithology of the rock at waterfall 2.
