Fieldwork course is a vital part of an Earth scientist’s training. It provides a wide range of practical exercises and field experience in geology: observing, measuring, recording, mapping, and problem-solving. Students will do field training throughout the course. Field geology teaches the basics as to how to make a map when the geology is complicated. The survey part introduces students to survey measurements of distance, direction and elevations with math review. Survey transverse and triangulation calculations and adjustments including map plotting. Recording field measurements by hand and electronically. Angle measurements using sextants and theodolites, balancing angles; taping, electronic angle and distance measurements, total stations; traverses; coordinate geometry and differential leveling.
