Goals
Field Geology ll aims to prepare students for working in the Field. In this course, all practical field related to general subjects are given to the students in the field. To teach the structures and properties of the rocks; prepare mapping, measuring stratigraphical sections, to gain the interpretation ability by using the structural elements from the prepared geological maps.
Content
Application of field investigation methods, which is theoretically given in the course of Field Geology I; Use of the compass and field equipment. Direction measurement, traverse method. Use of the topographical maps, definitions of a particular location in the field and mark it on the base map, drawing boundary contact and panel diagrams. Methods of geological mapping, definition of lithostratigraphic units. Sampling methods, geological cross sections. Schematic sections and panoramic diagrams. Stratigraphic thickness measurement by means of Brunton compass, tape meter and Jacob.
