Course Description

This course will cover plate tectonics and mountain building, volcanoes and earthquakes,
Various rock types and characteristics, the geometry of the major structures and the techniques used to evaluate them within the petroleum industry will be covered. There will  be a review of sedimentary environments and processes of erosion, transport and deposition of sediments by water and wind. The course includes a field trip.
