Welcome our course pages on mapping active faults--2022 Spring

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.
