Bedrock Geology (CANCELLED)

Timothy Schroeder

Understanding solid‐earth processes requires detailed observations of both the mineralogical/chemical makeup of rocks, and of textures and structures within rocks. The emphasis of the course will be on field and laboratory observation of rock textures and structures, including depositional features that allow us to interpret how the rocks formed, and tectonic/metamorphic features that can help us determine how Plate Tectonic activity modified the rocks since their formation. Students will be expected to become proficient at field observation skills and laboratory methods used to interpret field data. This is an intermediate/advanced level course that assumes prior knowledge of earth systems.
