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
V-rule
3-Point-Problems
unconformities
faults
introduction to the Lambert projection
folds
magmatic structures
Lecture notesExercises and instructions are handed out and are available online in Moodle.
LiteratureSemester literature can be found in the ERDW-library.
Prerequisites / NoticeThis course is for ETH students only. Students of the UZH please refer to the study advisor of Geography and Earth System Science of UZH in order to replace the course with an equivalent module at UZH.

This course is not a prerequisite, but nevertheless extremely helpful for the Geological Field Course I and II.
