Students, with knowledge of the stratigraphy of the field area will work with a partner to map contacts between adjacent units, measure and record attitudes, make detailed lithologic descriptions of strata across the field area. This data will then be analyzed by the students and a geologic interpretation of the mapping area will be developed. Students will create complete geologic maps along with two cross sections through the field area. Students will write a brief summary of how the geology which they have mapped in this field area fits into what they have been taught about the wider regional geology and geologic history of the area.
