ESCI 211 - Sedimentology
Sediments and sedimentary rocks preserve information about the rocks that were eroded to form them, the fluids and forces that transported them, the mechanisms by which they were deposited, and the processes by which they were lithified. This course introduces the principles of sedimentology, including sediment composition, fluid mechanics, bedform analysis, and depositional environments.
Not offered in 2017/18.
Two 75-minute periods; one 4-hour laboratory.
