||Sch of Earth & Environmental Sciences (pre 2015)
Stress, temperature and hydrothermal fluids in the lithosphere. Faults, shear zones
and fluid flow. Interation between deformation, metamorphism, mineralisation and tectonics.
Metamorphism at different levels in the crust. Interpretation of field data and of
structural and metamorphic relationships and history.
- An understanding of stress, temerature and fluid distributions in the lithosphere,
and the factors that affect them, at present and in the geological past;
- The causes and effects of faulting and shear zone formation, and their relation to
- An understanding of the relationships between deformation, metamorphism and mineralisation;
