EAS 3040 - Interior of the Earth


(OPHLS-AG, PBS-AS)      
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: EAS 2250 CHEM 2070  or equivalent; PHYS 2207  or PHYS 1112 , or permission of instructor.

K. Keranen.

Investigates the geology of the solid earth with emphasis on igneous and metamorphic petrology, structure of the continents and ocean basins, and large-scale tectonics. Interaction between deformation, melt generation, and metamorphism is examined as mechanisms by which the crust is differentiated from the underlying mantle. Geophysical and geochemical techniques for probing the deep interior of the earth are investigated. Plate tectonics is used as a unifying theme to understand processes operating in the solid earth.
