Lab Overview This laboratory is an introduction to geologic maps and structures.
This laboratory is an introduction to geologic maps and structures. Geologic maps are the most detailed and useful maps made. Much of the information already covered in this course is incorporated into geologic maps, such as rock types, rock ages (the geologic time scale), and topographic features, including contours.
*Carefully follow instructions*
The lab text does completely contain all of the needed content for this lab. A video
https://youtu.be/FIvM9tCK4pc (Links to an external site.) is provided to actively introduce the content that
may be particularly helpful for comprehending rock attitude. Two summary videos are provided that are meant to guide the student through the first two parts of the assignment. The video https://youtu.be/OD4M1Sp05X0 for part 1 (Links to an external site.) should be viewed while making the initial attempt at creating the 3D model (provided). The video https://youtu.be/u4K0xDDM65A for part 2 (Links to an external site.) should be viewed after generally reviewing and attempting the lab text questions, but before submitting the assignment.
This lab must be downloaded and printed to complete. Or you may electronically do the assignment. File name to comeplete is attached to
this order called: 8 Geologic Maps and Structures with lab text.pdf .
& 8 Cardboard Model 2.pdf
There is also a model that is part of the lab and three pages from the lab textbook attached to this Lab in the files name: Geologic Map Pg 114-116 . Fill in all of the pages of the lab handout, pages 114-116 of the lab text, and the paper model.
Please complete all questions and fill in the maps.
