EPS116 - Structural Geology
This class introduces students to geologic
structures, their classification, their geometry, and
their mechanics. Emphasis is put on the origins of geologic
structures, their genetic relation to stress fields and their
use as kinematic indicators. Laboratory exercises will focus
on the analysis of field data and on the application of continuum
mechanics to the interpretation and understanding of geologic
structures. Laboratory sections will include the use of computers,
as well as two field trips to observe geologic structures.
