GEO 225 Introduction to Field Methods

Collection and interpretation of geologic data form the core of the course, with seven days devoted to field work. Basic rock identification, analysis of ancient environments, and structural geology are discussed and applied during field work. Scientific writing skills are emphasized. The techniques learned in this course are widely applicable so the course is open to majors of any specialty. Field trips replace weekly laboratory work.
