This is the second in person field school since 2020. Although there was a field school last year, it was missing the reflections survey that had been traditionally carried out. This year saw the return of this. However, participation numbers are still lower than in years past and this year??s field school was shorter than most. The University of Calgary??s geophysics field school is often one of the first time that students have the opportunity to witness and operate the equipment used for collecting data that that have been, or will be, studying. This provides a vital link in the thought process as to why certain raw data may appear as it does. And it grants an understanding that data collection in the outside environment doesn??t always conform to simulated data often used for teaching processing and interpolation methods. All acquisition was performed at the Carbon Management Canada Newell County Facility (formerly the CaMI Field Research Station) near the town of Brooks, Alberta.
