Goals Top and bottom of the geological formations in the field, age and contact relationships necessary for determining the structural / tectonic features observed. Measurement of the position of the rocks. the interpretation of the data with the help of maps, sections and learn the various computer programs.
Contents Formations and positions of the boundaries, planar structures (Plates, faults, fractures and fracture systems, ore veins, etc.)., Linear structures and geological formations in the field by field studies to determine the lithological properties.
Work Placement(s) Absent

Number Learning Outcomes
1 Measure the thickness of layered structures and positions and also can Geological mapping
2 can measure and mapping structural features of igneous and metamorphic rocks (schistosity, foliation, lineations, dyke, holding structures, flow structures, etc.),
3 Give advice on the formation conditions In the presence of the layers and the formation of igneous-metamorphic rocks inclined sequence, cut-cut relationship, boundary of the types and aging.
4 Make measurements and comments, allows for geology with engineering problems, such as rock falls, landslides in the field.
