EPSC 425: Sediments to Sequences

This course is intended to provide advanced undergraduate students in Earth sciences or related fields an introduction to techniques for interrogating the stratigraphic record. Topics include geophysical techniques, cyclicity in the sedimentary record, sequence stratigraphy, chemostratigraphy, radiometric techniques for dating the sedimentary record, and basin analysis.

This course will next be taught in Winter 2018. It will be taught as two 1 hr lectures and will involve an optional (but strongly encouraged) winter break field trip. The past two times I have taught this course, we this trip went to southern Spain.

I keep a regularly updated set of coarse notes and slides for this class. If you are interested in seeing these, please contact me.
