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, ...

Tectonics
Graham Andrews
Bi-weekly seminar focused on the reading of short, high-impact journal articles on "hot-topics" in tectonics.

Subject: Geology: Geoscience:Geology:Tectonics

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 ...

Plate Tectonics
Rory McFadden, Salem State University
A systematic treatment of the geology and geophysics of plate tectonics, based on present knowledge of the structure and physical properties of the Earth's interior. Included are present kinematics of plate ...

Structural Geology
Seth Kruckenberg, University of Wisconsin-Madison
The prime purpose of this course is to improve your understanding of the deformation of the Earth's lithosphere, which is the focus of the study of structural geology. In my view, a first course in structural ...

The Plate Tectonics Revolution
Emily Peterman, Bowdoin College
Although only ~40 years old, the theory of plate tectonics provides a global framework to understand such varied phenomena as earthquakes, volcanoes, ocean basins and mountain systems both on continents (e.g. the ...

Global Tectonics
David Greene, Denison University
A study of geologic and tectonic processes at the global scale. Major topics include plate tectonic theory and development, plate geometries, processes at plate margins, volcanic arcs, collisional orogenies and ...

Global tectonics
John Weber, Grand Valley State University
Global Tectonics is our capstone course. Half of the course is devoted to getting a handle on basic plate kinematics (which is not covered explicitly in any other courses). Half of the course explores topics that ...

Global Issues in the Sciences--Living with our Earth: Earth science case studies from the Pacific NW and Himalaya
Beth Pratt-Sitaula, Central Washington University
Seminar style course that explores basic geologic systems through the lens of better understanding natural and manmade catastrophes in the Pacific Northwest and the Himalaya and how we, personally and as societies, ...
