GEOL 107 - Geological Field Methods and Mapping 1

This course provides students with a hands-on introduction to geological field methods and mapping. Course topics include field navigation and GPS use, topographic and geologic map use and analysis, effective field note-taking, and the systematic description of bedrock outcrops and soil profiles. Students employ common mapping strategies to construct basic geologic maps at multiple scales and use map data to make cross-section interpretations about subsurface geology. The course also introduces land access and use considerations in Yukon that impact how geoscientists conduct fieldwork, both for research and in industry.
