GEOL 468E. Advance Structure, Stratigraphy and Techntonics

Advanced concepts in structural geology (analysis of rheology, stress and strain, deformation fabrics, chronologic constraints) applied to the tectonic evolution of orogens and basins. This will include exploration of the mechanisms controlling the stratigraphic record (auto- and allogenic mechanisms and sequence theory) of basins, as well as methods of dating the stratigraphic record (biofaces and biostratigraphy, geochronology and chronostratigraphy, and magneto and chemostratigraphy).
