Introductory Independent Field Project

Module code: GL2010

Module co-ordinator: Professor Andy Saunders

This module involves two weeks of independent mapping during the summer between your first and second years. You will collect geological field data, use it to constrain the rock-architecture of a small area, and write a technical report on the project. You will normally return to the same area for your third-year field project.


The module is taught through a combination of fieldwork, tutorials, lectures, and practicals.
