OVERVIEW

This course is divided in two modules: one focused on field mapping and the second one is an introduction to the interpretation of geological maps.  The “Geological Mapping 1” concerns the basic methods and techniques for the collection of geological data in the field (i.e.; lithology, stratigraphy, structures, etc.) and their representation on a geological map.  The “Introduction to Geological Maps” deals with the reading and interpretation of geological maps and the representation of three-dimensional geological structures on a geological cross-section.
