GEO 311 Stratigraphy 4.0 Credits

Students in this core course will learn the about foundations of stratigraphy, including the discovery of “Deep Time.” Lithostratigraphic, chronstratigraphic, and geochronologic principles will be examined, including the development of the geological time scale. Students will learn to construct stratigraphic cross-section, though lithostratigraphic, biostratigraphic, and sequence stratigraphic correlation. Practical techniques, such as magnetostratigraphy and electrologging will be covered and students will gain hands-on, field experience in stratigraphic settings ranging from the Paleozoic to the Pleistocene.
