ESCI 34500 - Tectonics and Basin Analysis

Course Credit: 1.25
Tectonics and Basin Analysis An examination of the processes responsible for the formation and evolution of tectono-sedimentary basins in order to understand the interplay of tectonic, climatic, and eustatic controls on subsidence mechanisms and sediment accumulation history. Selected tectonic settings and diverse basin types from different geologic time periods will be emphasized. Various petrographic, sedimentologic, stratigraphic, structural, and geophysical data sets will be used in order to model and to analyze basin histories. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory weekly. Prerequisite(s): ESCI-20000 (or GEOL-20000); ESCI-34500L [MNS, Q]
