Deformation and Metamorphism - GEOS272

This unit explores interdisciplinary perspectives on the origin and geological evolution of Australia. Join us to explore the geology of Australia from Archaean cratonic shields to Proterozoic fold belts and basins of the western two-thirds of Australia and discover the immense continental growth during the Phanerozoic evolution of the eastern margin of Australia. This skills-based unit integrates projects, lectures and laboratory classes to develop theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience needed to describe and interpret deformed and metamorphosed rocks.
