An overview of the dominant sedimentologic processes operating in both modern and ancient depositional environments. Students will learn how to examine and interpret features of sedimentary rocks and how to assess temporal or spatial patterns in sequences of sedimentary rocks. Students will then use these observations to expand their understanding of Earth history. The laboratory section of the course will include six in-lab field trips, as well as two weekend field trips. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory each week. Requisite: Geology 11. Spring semester. Professor Hagadorn.
