EARS 52 Structural Geology

This course examines various aspects of regional-scale geologic processes and structures, or tectonics. Topics of study include the history of relevant geologic thought, rock deformation, the origin and evolution of mountain belts, the growth of continents and ocean basins, the causes of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and tectonic geomorphology. Students learn that tectonic analysis requires the synthesis of a wide range of information in an attempt to reconstruct the history and driving dynamics of the large-scale, geologic architecture of a particular region. Format: faculty- and student-led presentations, and discussion of selected articles from the peer-reviewed literature.

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.
