Structural Geology and Tectonics
Steve Hurst, University of Illinois at Chicago
Junior -senior level course introduction to structural geology and tectonics
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 ...
Microstructure and Rock Rheology
Whitney Behr, The University of Texas at Austin
This course focuses on microphysical processes of deformation operative in the crust and upper mantle, with an emphasis on distinguishing these processes using microstructural analysis.
Geologic Structures and Map Interpretation
Genet Duke, Northeastern Illinois University
Determination of the attitude and thickness of inclined strata and their bearing on outcrop patterns; preparation of geological maps from given field data; and interpretations of aerial photos, topographic maps, ...
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, UNAVCO
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.
