Proof of Health Insurance - please provide ahead of time and carry with you a document or insurance card showing valid health/medical insurance coverage for the full duration of SAGE (June 17 - July 12). Short-term plans and international insurance are acceptable.
Laptop - The last week of SAGE consists of preparing a PowerPoint-style presentation and a written report. The faculty will provide a handful of personal computers for data processing and analysis, but the ability to loan these computers out to participants for individual work on their reports and presentations will be extremely limited.
Note on laptops: Most of the geophysical processing software used at SAGE runs on Windows. If you do not have a Windows machine, it may be helpful to set up a Windows partition (either through Virtual Machine or BootCamp) on your laptop prior to arriving at SAGE. Most universities will provide software and IT support to assist with this.
Required Camping & Field Gear*
These items are not required but may be useful to bring or purchase in Santa Fe:
*Note: We encourage participants that do not already own camping equipment to ask friends, family, fellow students, and/or professors for items to loan before purchasing new gear for SAGE. Select outdoor suppliers (e.g., REI) allow you to rent camping equipment (although the REI in Santa Fe does not offer this service). A limited supply of camping equipment will be available to rent from the outfitter that supports the SAGE camp. Please notify the faculty well in advance if you anticipate that you will need to borrow gear from the outfitter.
