Tectonics, Petrogenesis and Metallogenesis
This synthesis course provides an integrated overview of tectonic environments and geodynamic processes and their roles in petrogenesis and metallogenesis. The course will integrate knowledge from the petrogenesis and metallogenesis of divergent margins, convergent margins, passive margins, and large igneous provinces. The course will also consider how petrogenetic processes and structural styles have varied in orogens representing a variety of crustal levels through Earth history. PREREQ: GEOL 3206, 3207, 3217, 3306, 3607, 3807. (lec 3) cr 3. Students may not retain credit for both GEOL 4506 and GEOL 4505.
