GEO 383 GEO 383. Clastic Depositional Systems. 3 Hours.
River-, wave-, tide-, and gravity-driven processes are examined in modern depositional systems and considered in relation to sediment-flux, base-level, and autogenic changes. Application to the development of dynamic facies models and alluvial-shoreline-shelf-deepwater transitions in stratigraphic data. The equivalent of four lecture hours a week for one semester, including a four to five day field seminar. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in geological sciences.
