Geo 335 - Geology & Mineral Resources of Texas

Spring 2005 Upper Division Geology Elective
We will study eruptive processes and products, using methods and concepts from mineralogy, petrology, fluid dynamics, depositional processes, geomorphology, stratigraphy, structural geology, field mapping, economic geology, remote sensing, geochemical monitoring, and seismology. We will examine the economic aspects of volcanism, the prediction and reduction of volcanic risks, and challenges faced by geologists in communicating with the public, with decision-makers, and with the media.

Lab exercises will be case studies of active and ancient volcanoes and their lithologic and economic products, using samples and petrographic sections, topographic and geologic maps, stratigraphic sections, ground-based and aerial photos, videos, and orbital images.

Prerequisites: GEO 426P, or upper division standing in geological sciences
