EENV:491 Geological Mapping.
Students are introduced to topographic and geologic map reading and interpretation, different methods of field mapping, recognition of geologic features responsible for producing the landscape, and how to produce geologic maps. Students will use compasses, plane tables, GPS and other methods to map and survey the geology and topography of the landscape. This course will integrate elements of structural geology with geomorphology to help students develop the fundamental tools necessary to take mapping to the next level. Prerequisite: EENV:113. 4 SH. 3 lecture hours. 3 laboratory/field hours.
