Field and Laboratory Studies in Geoscience - GEOS207

This skills-based unit integrates projects, lectures and laboratory classes to develop theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience needed to describe and interpret rocks in the field and laboratory. Field methods involve aerial photograph interpretation, representation of three-dimensional structural data and observations of rock types, rock structures and the relationship between geology and topography. Laboratory methods include geological map interpretation, optical and electron microscopy and geochemical data analysis. The field and laboratory skills are combined to complete an integrated forensic science case study.
