GEOS 5670 - Geological Field Mapping

This course will train students how to inspect rock outcrops in the field, collect geological data using approved field methods and how to record those data both manually and digitally. They will learn how to make geological maps and geological cross-sections employing those collected data. They will then, in turn, become adept at interpreting rock mineralogy, associated textural characteristics, rock structures, and deformation changes to reconstruct the geological history of the study area.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: GEOS 5650, GEOS 5660, and (GEOS 5430 or GEOS 4300); or instructor approval. GEOS 5650 and GEOS 5660 may be taken concurrently. A grade of “C” or better is required to satisfy any course prerequisite.

Credits: 1 hour

Notes: Open to undergraduate and graduate students.
When Offered: Summer I
