This unit investigates two key subset areas in earth science; structural and metamorphic geology. This unit incorporates theory, practicals and laboratory based learning with a focus on fieldwork skills and observations on natural outcrop. The lab studies include metamorphic petrology, recognition of metamorphic facies, structural analysis, classification and interpretation. The field studies focus on general field skills, geological mapping, structural analysis, constructing geological histories. Recognition and interpretation of metamorphic facies and processes are also taught in the field.
