The class focuses on geomorphic fault mapping. Students will learn techniques for mapping tectonic faults in different geomorphic and tectonic environments. They will complete several short projects and then a longer independent project on fault mapping that includes a final presentation and written report. Students will collaborate with students at other universities and with industry geologists. Students can complete the course working virtually, with a computer and internet.
