UPDATED- ALERT for Geology Majors- Fall 2014 will see a (now somewhat reduced) bumper crop of upper division field courses, and undergrad GEOL majors should take advantage of the opportunity to get this requirement of the Geology major completed while there is availability. Each field course is 2-credit hours, but most have capped enrollments of ~15 students. Below is course description of each course to be offered.

Upper division, 2-credit hour field course (GEOL 47xx) offerings for Fall 2014-

GEOL-4711 (2) Igneous and Metamorphic Field Geology Instructor-Professor Charles Stern Applies field techniques to interpretation of igneous and metamorphic rocks. Field exercises and lectures focus on collecting data required to map igneous and metamorphic rock units. Prereqs., GEOL 2700 or 2001 and GEOL 3020.

GEOL-4714 (2) Field Geophysics Instructor-TBA Applies geophysical field techniques and data interpretation to studying geological and engineering problems. Fieldwork includes seismic, gravity, magnetic, and electrical measurements. Prereqs., GEOL 2700 or 2001, and MATH 1300 and PHYS 1110, or instructor consent.

GEOL-4716 (2) Environmental Field Geochemistry Instructor-Professor Alexis Templeton Develops basic field skills in the most commonly performed tasks required for the environmental characterization of solid and aqueous wastes. Media of study include soils, stream sediments, surface waters, ground waters, and atmospheric particulates. Prereqs., GEOL 2700 or 2001, and CHEM 1011/1031, or CHEM 1113/1133, and GEOL 3320 or instructor consent.

GEOL-47XX (2) Field Studies Sedimentary Geology Instructor-Professor Paul Weimer Develops the recognition of rock types, sedimentary structures, and biogenic structures to interpret sedimentary environments. Field work involves the descriptions of multiple measured stratigraphic sections, and then the correlation of these strata and their unconformities to place them in a regional stratigraphic context. Prerequisites: GEOL 2700, GEOL 3430 or by consent of instructor
