This course is intended to serve as an in-depth investigation into the genesis, classification and interpretation of sedimentary rocks. Students learn to analyze and collect data from both hand samples and thin sections, and to interpret that data for classification, provenance and tectonic setting. Theoretical information will enable them to understand the geological significance of sedimentary rock distribution. Three lecture hours and three laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: GLS 102  or permission of Department Chairperson.
