UC Davis Geo 101: Structural Geology
|Part I: Brittle Deformation and Mechanics Part II: Strain, Rheology, and Technonics|
Chapters 12-16,19,20 in textbook, covering strain, analysis of folding, lineations, and foliations, and plastic (flow) rheology. The last two chapters cover divergent (rift) and convergent continental tectonics, which we will discuss in the last week of class. The final exam is comprehensive. It covers content from both Part 1 and Part 2.
