Geology 204 - Structral Geology

Arlo B. Weil

Department of Geology
Park Science Room 130

Structural geology in its simplest form is the study of rock deformation in the Earth's lithosphere viewed from all scales - from the microscopic (atomic scale) to the macroscopic (continental scale). The understanding of how and why rocks deform is of fundamental importance in our overall understanding of how the Earth works. This class will focus on building a foundation of knowledge and understanding that will allow you, the student, to broaden your appreciation and understanding of the complexity of the Earth system and the links between geologic structures at all scales and plate tectonics.
