Course Description & Objectives: 

This course deals with the science of rock strata; the age relationships of strata, succession of beds, correlation of strata, stratigraphic order and chronologic arrangement of beds in the geologic column as well as applications of stratigraphy.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Course Objectives: The objectives of the course are to enable students;

  1. Describe the deposition processes of geologic resources in stratified rocks.
  2. Explain the history and evolution of the earth using the different rock units.
  3. Describe the use of seismic reflection to study lithology, geometry and the depositional history of sedimentary formations.
  4. Describe the dating of ores associated with igneous and metamorphic rocks that are in contact with layered rocks.
  5. Apply concepts in interactions of tectonics, sea level and sediment supply to generate models for sedimentary basin fill.
