KurzbeschreibungTo provide a theoretical grounding in advanced aspects of structural geology, as well as the practical application of structural field mapping techniques in complexly deformed areas.
LernzielTo learn to map, characterize, measure and analyze complex structures and multiple phases of deformation in the field. The purpose of the course is to give you an experience akin to doing real structural geology and tectonics research while exposing you to advanced aspects of structural analysis.
InhaltThis course has shifted from a lecture-based course, to a field course with an associated term project. We will have ~4 introductory lectures prior to the field trip. The core of the class will be a field trip scheduled for Monday, April 22 to Friday, April 26 (1.5 days travel, 3.5 days in field) on Syros Island in Greece where you will learn to map, measure and analyse a wide range of different deformation fabric types related to Aegean subduction, exhumation and metamorphism. After the field trip, the rest of the semester you will be expected to write a journal-manuscript-style report describing and synthesizing your field data. We will likely not have formal lectures after the field trip, but myself and the TAs will have regular office hours where you can access us to discuss your data or ask questions regarding the report.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesPrevious field mapping experience (field courses I, II and III for ETH Bachelor students or the equivalent for students admitted from elsewhere to the Master program); Structural Geology Course; Petrology/Petrography Course is recommended but not required.

Geography and Earth System Sciences students UZH may attend this lecture but will have to pay the full amount for the field course (no subsidies from UZH).
