Physical geographical, Mineral and geological field trips in the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences for students on Geography BSc. and Geography teachers

In our Institute, there is a tradition to organize field trips for students in connection with the Minerals and Rocks seminars. In this term, we organized field trips to gather minerals and rocks and to get some information about Mátra, Bükk and Zemplén Mountains for our forts term students in Geograpy.
Students could take part in the following field trips:
• 15/10/2016. – 1st field trip for rock and mineral gathering (field trip organizers: Dr. Anna Dobos, Prof. Dr. Márta Polgári and Péter Gál)
• 22/10/2016. – 1st non-rock gathering field trip (field trip organizer: Dr. Anna Dobos)
• 11/112016. – 2nd non-rock gathering fied trip (field trip organizer: Dr. Anna Dobos)
• 12/11/2016. – 2nd rock and mineral gathering field trip (field trip organizers: Prof. Dr. Márta Polgári and Péter Gál)

1st. Rock and Mineral Gathering field trip:
- the route of this field trip was the following:
• Eger – Tófalu – Detk - Gyöngyös – Gyöngyösoroszi – Károlytáró – Malom-bérc – Vereskő-bérc – Gyöngyösoroszi – Parád – Sirok – Eger.
• During this trip, our students could get some new information about the landscape development and rocks and minerals in the Bükkalja Foothill Areas and Mátra Mts.. Student could practise the methods of rock and mineral gathering as well in non-protected mine areas.

1st Non-gathering field trip:
