● Structural Geology
An introduction to the principles, concepts, and problems about structures of rocks as well as regions. Topics include plate tectonics, stress and its relationship to failure of rocks, structural styles and their initiation and development, the analysis of the orogenic belt.
● Advanced Structural Geology
An overview of the structure of rocks and regions. Topics involve plate tectonics, the structural styles, kinematic analysis of shear zones and fold mechanisms, analysis of superposed deformation and refolded folds, rheology and the mechanical properties of rocks, deformation processes, mechanisms and metamorphic core complexes, models and quantitative techniques for analysing for strain in rocks, and application of structural geology in orogenic belt.
