This course introduces basic concepts and methods of structural geology to enable cross- disciplinary exchange of ideas and experience. It provides the required input to help you understand questions crucial to the surface and subsurface structures formation and brittle deformation: Why and how these structures have formed over geologic time? What are the factors that controlled their formation and deformation? What are the impacts of such structures on human activities in civil engineering, mining and oil and gas exploration, production and development?
Course Structure: 3 modules of 4 hours each, delivered over 3 days Each day will consist of 1 module which will be no more than 4 hours in length with multiple breaks.
