Geologic Field Methods is a 5-week long, 9-credit capstone course for students registered at CWU; due to space restrictions, non-CWU students can not be accepted into this course.
This course emphasizes learning how to create, read, and interpret geologic maps in the context of:
ii. applying knowledge of core subject areas,
iii. developing skills on the proper acquisition of data,
iv. learning the limitations in quantity and quality of data,
v. developing sound interpretations based on uncertain, non-unique, and limited data, and limited time for analysis, and
vi. applying deductive reasoning using the scientific method.
The Geologic Field Methods course will be held in two locations. During the first three weeks, students will map out of Oregon State University's field station in Mitchell, OR and during the last two weeks, students will map out of Idaho State University's field station in Big Lost River Valley, ID.
