Description:

To prepare for this project, students have gained familiarity with thin-section preparation and the use of analytical equipment such as the XRD. The students have also learnt how to measure and interpret paleocurrent data. They have read background articles on the basin of study. In the field, students learn how to measure a stratigraphic section and the application of Walther's Law. The goal is to combine the skills acquired earlier in the class to interpret the stratigraphy, facies, depositional history and paleogeography of an outcrop in the field. This exercise also links sedimentation and tectonics.
