19-20 GL3200: Marine Geology

Introduction to the geology of the ocean basins and their margins, and the tectonic, sedimentary, and hydrothermal processes that created and shaped them. Will introduce students to standard geological and geophysical techniques used to explore the deep sea and continental margins. The material in this course can also serve to refresh and synthesize previous study in sedimentary basins, volcanology, metamorphic petrology, and plate tectonics.
