GEOE 481 Advanced Structural Analysis
Applications of the principles of rock deformation to the fabric analysis of rocks in the optimization of strategies for open-ended resource exploration, resource engineering and geotechnical engineering problems. Emphasis is on fracture, fault, and vein analysis; structures in fold and thrust belts; and studies of superposed deformation and their impact on effective and economical mineral resource development. Offered next in 2011/12, and every second year thereafter.
