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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
This course is an upper-level structural geology course with a focus on understanding stress, strain, the formation of geologic structures, and 3-D visualization.
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 ...
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, ...
Howell Bosbyshell, West Chester University of Pennsylvania
Determination of the sequential development and the forces involved in the various structural features of the earth.
Elizabeth Goeke, Salem State University; Elizabeth Goeke, Vassar College
Structural Geology course that focused on how theoretical knowledge of the brittle and ductile behavior of a wide-range of geological materials can be applied to real-world problems.
