EOS 2125. Field Studies in Structural Geology

Christian Schrader
Geologic structures yield evidence for the dynamic deformation of the earth’s crust. Examines deformation at scales that range from the plate-tectonic scale of the Appalachian mountains to the microscopic scale of individual minerals. A strong field component provides ample opportunity for describing and mapping faults, folds, and other structures exposed along the Maine coast. Class exercises focus on problem solving through the use of geologic maps, cross-sections, stereographic projections, strain analysis, and computer applications.
