EARS 38 Introduction to Sedimentary Systems

This course considers the evidence, preservation, and temporal record of environmental change as preserved in sedimentary rocks. The aim is to learn how to interpret the sedimentary record through an emphasis on depositional models, both modern and ancient – these will be examined in detail with an eye toward interpretation of depositional processes and paleoenvironmental analysis. Short field exercises and group projects are a significant part of this course and are designed to improve your ability to make observations and cogently describe and interpret sedimentary structures and successions in the field.




One course from EARS 1, EARS 2, EARS 3, EARS 4, EARS 5, EARS 6, EARS 8, EARS 9 or permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
