Earth Sciences 3350Y - Advanced Field Mapping Techniques - Third Year Field Camp
Sudbury area, Ontario
This course is held from May 1-11 each year. A field school in a deformed metamorphic region. Emphasis will be on mapping techniques at large scales (from individual outcrops to macroscopic scales). The students will learn how to identify, measure, and document geological features at the outcrop scale and to make connections between outcrops. They are required to understand the structure of their map area in three-dimensions and to establish a kinematic synthesis for the history of their map area.
