Advanced Field Techniques in Geoscience - GEOS811

This is an advanced field-based unit with a strong emphasis on the observation and delineation of rock units using a range of different mapping techniques. The concepts of depositional environments, rock succession, rock deformation and geological histories will be enhanced during small-group tutorials. An initial report will include critical analysis of the literature covering depositional environment and provenance. A final report will include a discussion on the tectonic evolution of the area covered by the field mapping.
