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 ...
Microstructure and Rock Rheology
Whitney Behr, University of Texas at Austin, The
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.
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.
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, ...
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 ...
