Structural Geology

Geology 340

Usual Description

The measurable deformation that occurs within Earth produces a variety of rock structures. Lectures examine rock structures, analyze the factors that control how rocks deform, discuss the role of rock deformation in tectonics, and discuss interpretations of the deformation patterns in the context of plate tectonics. Labs and problem sets emphasize techniques for observing, analyzing, and interpreting map patterns, outcrops, hand samples, and thin sections of deformed rocks. Field trip(s) required.
