Martha Growdon, SUNY College at Oneonta
An introduction to common structural features-folds, faults, foliations, lineations, unconformities, geologic contacts, their geometry and origin. Examination of basic concepts of stress and strain; laboratory ...
Katherine Boggs, Mount Royal University
This is a typical introductory course to Structural Geology. Because the course is small, I'm able to interweave lecture and labs and also to take the group on a weekend field trip through the Canadian ...
Active Tectonics and Urban Geology Field Trip
George Davis, The University of Arizona
Teaching of Active Tectonics provides context for examining contemporary deformation of the earth's crust as seen in regional examples and in the context of data and information drawn from regional tectonics, ...
Introduction to Geophysics
YoungHee Kim, Seoul National University
An introduction to the geophysics of the solid earth; structure and composition of the earth; interactions between crust, mantle, and core; imaging of the interior via seismic imaging tools
Physics of the Earth
Rob Sternberg, Franklin and Marshall College
To gain a basic understanding of physics applied to the solid earth. (For this course, the "solid earth" will exclude the atmosphere, ionosphere, and hydrosphere, although these could be included in a ...
Sarah Titus, Carleton College
This is a pretty standard upper-level Structural Geology course.
Bi-weekly seminar focused on the reading of short, high-impact journal articles on "hot-topics" in tectonics.
Geoffrey Pignotta, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
The description and classification of geological structures and the theoretical and physical analysis of rock deformation. Field and laboratory techniques emphasize mapping and the tectonic analysis of geological ...
Structural Geology and Tectonics
Jackie Langille, University of North Carolina at Asheville
Study of rock deformational processes and resulting structures in the Earth's crust with application to global and regional tectonics. Lab work and field trips emphasize the use of methods to assist in the ...
Sarah Brownlee, Wayne State University
This is a required course for the Geology majors, and it covers the basics of structural geology including stress, strain, and deformation, and identifying structures. We use the text "Structural Geology of ...
