This unit is envisaged as an intensive school-based unit where the student will further develop the field techniques used in sedimentological, stratigraphic, structural and metamorphic mapping, acquired in prerequisite units.
The unit will be entirely field based. Students will be required to complete two main geological mapping excercises assessing different methods and scales of mapping over 10 days. Smaller focused modules, such as cross-sections, geological histories, geological reports and 3-D block diagrams will also be assessed. This field-work excursion forms the total course-work demand for this unit.
The aim of this unit is to provide the students with the experience and skills needed to be employed as a competent graduate geologist. Students will be taught both traditional and modern field mapping methods, including the use modern analytical equipment.
