Sedimentary Geology - EARTH312 (2019)
The ultimate goal of sedimentary geology is to reconstruct the history of the Earth's surface. This paper explores the links between sedimentary rocks and past environments through two major strands: reconstructing depositional environments and understanding the effects of sea-level change on sedimentary processes (sequence stratigraphy). A third strand explores the economic aspects of sedimentary geology, in particular aspects of petroleum geology, including unconventional resources. The paper includes an integrated lab-field component, with a three-day field mapping trip to the North Taranaki region.
