GEOS3171 – Earth Structures

GEOS3171 – Earth Structures demonstrates how large scale regional structures are inferred or measures from surface outcrop mapping. Most regions of the Earth's crust have been deformed over many millions of years, resulting in a complex three dimensional form. This course seeks to unravel this history through use of remotely sensed geophysical imagery and field mapping data.
