GEL 2530 - Introduction to Geologic Fieldwork

Credits: 2

Prerequisite(s): GEL 1010, GIS 1220 or equivalent

Description: This course is an introduction to field measurements and data collection for earth scientists. It examines methods and procedures in sampling, measuring, describing, mapping, and ascertaining field data. The heart of the course is a week-long field experience studying a variety of geologic features where students are trained in hands-on practices pertinent to industry and academia, such as strike and dip measurements, triangulation procedures, field notebook entries, and orienteering. Students must be in good physical condition because strenuous hiking is involved. Additional field trip fees are required.
