Class Details

Using plate tectonics and the geologic assembly of New England as a template, this course explores the origin of crystalline rocks–volcanic, plutonic, and metamorphic–that comprise 94% of the Earth’s crust. Field and lab studies are the crux of the course, supported by experimental work and thermodynamic principles. Chemical and mineralogical compositions and rock fabrics provide evidence for crystallization environments and tectonic settings, past and present. This course is in the Solid Earth group for the Geosciences major.
