GEOL 340 - Structural Geology


Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4NS, QP-F
The measurable deformation that occurs within Earth produces a variety of rock structures. Lectures examine rock structures, analyze the factors that control how rocks deform, discuss the role of rock deformation in tectonics, and discuss interpretations of the deformation patterns in the context of plate tectonics. Labs and problem sets emphasize techniques for observing, analyzing, and interpreting map patterns, outcrops, hand samples, and thin sections of deformed rocks.
Enrollment Limit: 16
