19-20 GL1600/GL1650: Earth Structures

ThisĀ course introduces you to the principles of structural geology and the interpretation of geological maps. In the first term you are introduced to large scale geological structures and how to recognise them on geological maps. You learn how to interpret maps, recognise outcrop patterns, geological structures and geological relationships on maps and how to draw cross sections. In the second term you learn how to recognise smaller scale structures in hand specimen and outcrop, and how to analyse structural data in order to understand larger scale structural relationships
