MG&G Students in the Workforce

To date, 24% of our alumni have gone on to successful careers in the energy, environmental, geotechnical, coastal restoration/management, and policy fields. Another 11% work in government labs and 9% have pursued careers in academia.


Show Me the Data

During a week in the field, we average 62 kilometers each of multibeam and seismic data collection. This is also close to the number of pounds of hamburgers we have made Tuesday nights in the field over the last 12 years!


Alumni of MG&G

We have had 164 students complete the class. While most are from the United States, we have had students from eighteen other countries as well. Students report that the variety in their peers' cultural and experiential backgrounds greatly enriches the course.


Get 'em Out There

Not only our area code, this is the average number of miles we put on our vehicles in one field course hauling, equipment, the small boat, and people to the Gulf Coast.


Lowest Pressure

During Hurricane Harvey, the lowest pressures recorded were 937 mbar. The course performed surveys before and after the hurricane that helped inform scientists about Texas’ coastal processes during and following major storms.


Makin' it Happen

Help us extend the class through 2020 and into the future!


The Big Boat

It costs approximately $10,000/day to charter the research vessel that is the centerpiece of the course. Students learn multichannel seismic, chirp, and coring techniques while on the large vessel.
