651-3321-00LInterpretation of Geological Maps IO2 credits2PM. Frehner
AbstractIntroduction to reading and construction of simple geologic maps.
Construction of geological cross-sections.
Introduction to Lambert projection and Schmidt net (i.e., stereoplots).

This course is mainly a hands-on-training, where students solve exercises under supervision.
ObjectiveTo improve the ability to understand geological structures in three dimensions and visualize them.

Learn how to read and interpret geological maps, as well as drawing geological cross-sections.

Learn the handling of the Schmidt net, so that students can later plot their own field data.
Contentstrike lines, symbols
true and apparent thickness of geological units
true and apparent dip
introduction to the Lambert projection
magmatic structures
