Introduction to Field Geology - GEOS226

This is a field-based unit with strong emphasis on observation and the development of mapping and generic field skills. Working in small groups, students produce local and regional geological maps to reveal past environments and show how these environments change through time. This involves the study of both natural outcrops and coloured air photographs of the region, complemented by computers using state of the art software.
