Marine Depositional Environments - GEOS206

This unit builds the knowledge and skills needed to understand geological processes and products in modern and ancient marine environments. The unit examines sedimentary and volcanic processes and their products; evidence of present day hydrothermal alteration and metamorphism of the oceanic lithosphere; and the formation of ore deposits in marine rocks. Emphasis is placed on reconstruction of ancient environments. There is a five-day field trip to the New South Wales south coast.
