Identify surface geologic units and tectonic elements with a geologic map. Demonstrate the use of cross sections in conjunction with geologic maps. Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to: demonstrate ability to read surface geological maps, illustrate relationship between a cross section and geological map, locate a particular rock unit on a surface geology map and define that unit’s geographic distribution, demonstrate understanding of an outcrop description and find rock units on a geological map, and understand various cross-section preparation techniques and factors influencing their choice.
