A pre-conference Virtual Field Trip event was run today at GeoUtrecht 2020. Three sessions were organised showcasing current work being done by the geoscience community to react to current restrictions on physical fieldwork, excursions and teaching. Of course, interest has been high around virtual field trips as a way of complementing physical field excursions for many years, and the technology is catching up. The VOG Group has long been active in this space, with presentation of integrated virtual 3D datasets being a common task, so we were able to contribute with two virtual field trips.
John Howell presented shallow marine and coastal plain deposits in the Book Cliffs, Utah, USA, based on multiscale virtual outcrop data. Simon presented work from the large and interdisciplinary TriasNorth project (with Universities of Oslo and Bergen), focussing on seismic-scale outcrops and the connection between outcrop and seismic data.
Naturally, both virtual field trips were presented 100% in LIME.
