This joint project is going to be held with the cooperation with two chapters : SEG Student Chapter Cracow and SEG Student Chapter Bucharest. Field Camp, which will take place in September 19-25, entitled “Searching for hidden treasures – Student’s Geophysical Quest” will be an unique opportunity of a multidisciplinary and multicultural experience.

A group of 30 students from Poland, Romania, Italy, Ukraine and Croatia will actively be involved in geophysical field trainings, cooperating with experienced teachers and researchers from two different universities as well as the professionals from the Polish Geological Institute – National Research Institute. The Field Camp will be carried out in a relatively restricted area, located close to the border between Poland and Czech Republic.

Associated with a very rich historical background, Kotlina Kłodzka is best known for its underground
buried buildings like abandoned mine shafts that are ready to be discovered.

Students participating in a Field Camp will have a chance to gain new experience both in solving field cases and field work. We are planning to use different types of geophysical surveys. We would like to present student to several geophysical methods :
– Electrical Resisitivity Tomography and Electromagnetic Conductivity Meters surveys which are used in archaeological geophysics and for shallow geology prospection;
– GPR – a method which allow us to show students how ground penetrating radar works in searching for crypts in old churches.

One of the most important aspects of Field Camp for the society members is the practical implementation of the theoretical knowledge during field measurements and further processing and interpretation of collected data.
