Course Description & Objectives: 

This is a full-fledged course, which introduces a student to, and offers an in-depth overview of geological structures. It covers factors affecting deformation of rocks, primary and secondary structures as well as plate tectonics. 

Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of the course students should be able to:

  • Describe the background and scope of structural geology.
  • Explain the processes involved in the formation of rocks, the criteria that control deformation mechanisms, and the effect of deforming forces
  • Determine strain in deformed rocks.
  • Describe the broad structure of the earth, the processes that moulded it into its present form and how they are related.
