GEO 341 - Geology Field Methods

(1-3)
FA, SP, SU, annually. Geology Field Methods teaches basic field observation, identification, and mapping skills for students in Geology, Geography, and Environmental programs. On-campus sessions will accompany the scheduled field study. We visit superb exposures of many varieties of rocks, as well as outstanding examples of geologic structures. We examine a variety of natural resources and study the environmental impacts of their use. After a study of the regional stratigraphy, a mapping project focuses on rock deformation and teaches field mapping techniques. Most of the class time will be in the field. This course may be offered as 1-3 credit hours depending on the field location and timing. NOTE: The field portion of this course is variable in length depending on the field locations. This course is repeatable for different areas of field study. A fee applies. Not offered in 2022-23.
