The course introduces mechanics of rock deformation. It examines identification, interpretation, and mechanics of faults, folds, and structural features of sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks as well as global, regional and local scale structural geology and tectonics. Lectures are supplemented by lab exercises and demonstrations as well as local field trips.
Students who do not have the prerequisites will be removed from the course. Priority will be given to students enrolled in the Specialist Program in Environmental Geoscience. Additional students will be admitted as space permits.
