GEY 2020 - Sedimentology and Stratigraphy

4 cr
Interpretation of sedimentary processes and depositional environments through the study of sedimentary rocks and their characteristics is the focus of this course. Identification of siliciclastic and carbonate sedimentary rocks, and recognition of textural features and sedimentary structures, along with vertical and lateral variation in lithology, provides the necessary data to interpret past environments of deposition, and how those environments have changed through time. The physical and chemical processes involved in weathering and diagenesis will be studied.
Prerequisite: GEY 1030  or GEY 1050 , and CHE 1041  or CHE 1051  or consent of instructor.
Lab fee $50.
Spring, odd years
