A course in general field methods of geologic science. The course is designed to provide students with the basic skills required to collect geologic data in the field and the skills necessary for constructing simple geologic maps. Types of fieldwork will include compass and orienteering work, measurement of rock features and descriptions of outcrops, as well as identification and mapping of geologic contacts. Geologic field work can be strenuous; students should expect to walk off trail over rough terrain carrying their own equipment. We will work through rain or shine; only seriously inclement weather will suspend work. CSU, UC
