Type C: Engineering, Mathematical and Natural Sciences - Geological Case Studies

Geology 4313 Geological Case Studies
Case studies are used to teach concepts of geological analysis on a regional scale. Published literature about the mapped lithologies, structure, petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, stratigraphy and/or geochronology of various regions will be used to unravel geological history and evaluate tectonic models. Typical case studies may include, for example, the Appalachian orogenic belt, the North American Cordillera, the Himalayan-Tibetan orogeny, and Proterozoic tectonics of North America.
