ESCI 34000 - Structural Geology

Course Credit: 1.25
STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY Mountain belts are some of the more majestic and scenic landforms on Earth, and they are archives into Earth’s history. GEOL 34000 focuses on the processes and geometry of deformed rocks by examining structures from the mesoscopic to the microscopic scale. Emphasis on fundamental principles, analysis methods, and field/lab-based techniques to solve real-world problems. Understanding structural deformation on Earth is important for many fields, including environmental pollution, the movement of groundwater, and the location of economic resources. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory weekly. Prerequisite(s): ESCI-20000 (or GEOL-20000); ESCI-34000L Alternate Years. [MNS, Q, QL]
