GEOL 7331 - Seismic Structural Geology

Credit Hours: 3.0
Lecture Contact Hours: 3   Lab Contact Hours: 0
Prerequisite: Graduate standing and GEOL 3345.

Fundamental principles of fault-related folding and other deformation mechanisms of the upper crust in compressional and extensional tectonic settings, with applications to interpretation of seismic-reflection images of deformed sedimentary basins. Topics included syntectonic growth strata, geomorphic and bathymetric expression of active deformation, and growth of structures by deformation in repeated large earthquakes. Practical interpretation, restoration and quantitative analysis of seismic reflection images of complex structures, including those constrained by syntectonic growth strata.
