GEOL 360.54 Sedimentology and Stratigraphy and Lab 6 credits

Open: Size: 21, Registered: 17, Waitlist: 0

Anderson Hall 123

Synonym: 61738

Clint A Cowan

This course is based on field examination of outcrops of Lower Paleozoic sedimentary rock. We will interpret the processes involved in the creation, movement, and deposition of these ancient sediments, and try to determine their paleoenvironments. Also of interest are the transformation of these sediments into rock and the analysis and correlation of strata. Weekly laboratories, one overnight trip, and one Saturday trip are required. Please note the late laboratory times. Both paleobiology and geomorphology prepare students for work in sedimentology. This course is intended for upperclass Geology majors, and much of the work is done in teams.

Prerequisite: Three 200-level Geology courses

Extra Time for weekend field trips.
