Program Leaders: Dr. Derek Martin (martindj1@appstate.edu), Dr. Mark Spond (spondmd@appstate.edu)

Program Dates: June 10 - June 26, 2019

Program Description: Climate Change, Glaciers, and Water Resources introduces students to Andean Mountain Geography (GHY 3140) and Water Resources in the Tropical Andes (GHY 3530) through direct field experience and research activities, readings, discussions, and meetings with guest speakers. Field excursions to Machu Picchu and a 5-day trek in the Cordillera Vilcanota near Cusco will provide an outstanding setting for the study of Andean mountain geography and the impacts of climate variability and change on tropical glaciers, ecosystems, and human populations.
