Eric P. Nelson
Eric conducted field work throughout the American cordillera, from Alaska to Patagonia, with forays into other locations around the globe, ranging from New Zealand to Europe. The focus of his work was largely on the Andes of Peru and Chile, where he worked with numerous graduate students, most funded by mineral exploration companies. His primary focus was on utilizing structural geology to aid in mineral exploration. In addition to research and university lecturing, Eric also taught structural geology to company geologists through short courses and field excursions.
