EES 6210 - Structural Geology and Tectonics

Credit Hour(s): 4
Study of the three-dimensional distribution of rock units. Deformational structures such as folds, faults, joints, cleavage, foliation, and lineation and their superposition are used to unravel the history of deformation, and ultimately to understand the stress fields that produced the observed strain and structures. Tectonics is the structural evolution of regional patterns of deformation at the scale of mountain ranges. Lecture/lab combined; 4 credit hours
Enrollment Restrictions: Must be enrolled in one of the following Levels: Graduate, Medical, Professional.

Level: Graduate
Schedule Type(s): Lecture/Lab Combination
