Italy: Earth and Environment

The Earth & Environment in Italy program introduces learners to the many ways in which Earth systems interact by plunging students headfirst into the field, which in this case is the mountain ranges, rivers, seas and soils of Italy and Croatia. The program is based at the Osservatorio Geologico di Coldigioco (OGC), a small village in the rural Italian Apennines. To learn more about the program, visit the Italy: Earth and Environment website.
