Magnetostratigraphy, Chemostratigraphy, and Radiometric Dating

Understand principles and techniques of magnetostratigraphy, chemostratigraphy and radiometric dating. Describe the practical application of these techniques in non-fossiliferous rock units. Explain how they provide pertinent information in petroleum exploration. Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to: describe the basic principles and techniques used in magnetostratigraphy, describe the basic principles and techniques used in chemostratigraphy, describe the basic principles and techniques used in radiometric measurements, demonstrate an understanding of the geologic reasons to apply these techniques, incorporate these dating techniques with outcrop and surface geological maps, understand dating techniques for subsurface samples like conventional cores, and understand advantages and disadvantages of each dating technique.
