Interpreting Earth History
Andrew Moore, Earlham College
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 ...
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 ...
Introduction to Geophysics
This course provides an introduction to the application of physics to study geologic structures, phenomenon, and processes. Geophysics is a large and diverse field, thus only selected methods will be covered. ...
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.
Jack Loveless, Smith College
Introductory structural geology
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.
Angela Moore, Guilford College
An introductory structural geology course that includes the study of stress and strain, rheology, qualitative aspects of brittle and ductile deformation processes, and descriptive analysis. Tectonics is also ...
Structural Geology (EAS 425)
Kyle Fredrick, California University of Pennsylvania
Conventional Structural Geology course with a primary focus on recognizing and measuring structure. Considerable time is spent on graphical analysis of structures (3-point problems, stereonets, remote and field ...
