GEOLSCI 204: Introduction to Petrology (GEOLSCI 104)

The origin of igneous and metamorphic rocks as a function of geologic and plate tectonic setting. How to determine the temperature and pressure conditions of formation from mineral assemblages, textures, and compositions. Undergraduate students majoring in Geological Sciences must take the course for 4 units and complete a weekly lab section examining rocks in thin section. Prerequisite: introductory geology course, GEOLSCI102; those taking the lab must also have completed GEOLSCI103 or have equivalent experience with a petrographic microscope.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3-4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

GEOLSCI 206: Topics in Organismal Paleobiology

Seminar course covering an area of structural biology, physiology, or ecology relevant to understanding the fossil record, with the topic changing each time the course is offered. Examples of potential topics are biomineralization, fluid mechanics, biomechanics, taphonomy & biochemical preservation, and the functional morphology/fossil history of specific evolutionary groups such as vertebrates, insects, or plants.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 2-3 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
Instructors: Boyce, C. (PI)

GEOLSCI 213: Topics in Sedimentary Geology

For upper division undergraduates and graduate students. Topics vary each year but the focus is on current developments and problems in sedimentary geology, sedimentology, Archean geology, and basin analysis. These include issues in deep-water sediments, their origin, facies, and architecture; sedimentary systems on the early Earth; and relationships among tectonics, basin development, and basin fill. May be repeated for credit.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit

GEOLSCI 253: Petroleum Geology and Exploration

The origin and occurrence of hydrocarbons. Topics: thermal maturation history in hydrocarbon generation, significance of sedimentary, structural and tectonic setting, trapping geometries and principles of accumulation, and exploration techniques. Prerequisites: 110, 151. Recommended: GEOPHYS 223.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

GEOLSCI 257: Clastic Sequence Stratigraphy

Sequence stratigraphy facilitates integration of all sources of geologic data, including seismic, log, core, and paleontological, into a time-stratigraphic model of sediment architecture. Tools applicable to regional and field scales. Emphasis is on practical applications and integration of seismic and well data to exploration and field reservoir problems. Examples from industry data; hands-on exercises.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
Instructors: McHargue, T. (PI)

GEOLSCI 259: Stratigraphic Architecture

The stratigraphic architecture of deposits associated with a spectrum of depositional environments, using outcrop and subsurface data. Participants read and discuss selected literature.
Terms: Aut, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit
Instructors: McHargue, T. (PI)
