EA3200 - Advanced Structural and Metamorphic Geology
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
This subject is a follow-up of EA2300: Introductory Metamorphic and Structural Geology.
In the metamorphic section, emphasis will be placed on the techniques used to reconstruct
the tetono-metamorphic and fluid evolution of a metamorphic terrain. The structural
geology section is aimed to enhance the learner's capabilities to provide high-standard
descriptions and interpretations of geometric, kinematic and structural data of deformed
rocks and regions.
- understand the thermodynamics of metamorphic reactions;
- understand the fundamental concepts of rock deformation such as rheology, stress and
- be able to describe, characterise and analyse a large variety of structural and metamorphic
- to write a geological report;
- have an understanding of how to study a metamorphic terrain using (a) mineral relationships
in thin sections, (b) mineral chemistry, and (c) whole-rock chemical data.
