Geologic Field Methods is a 5-week long, 9-credit capstone course for CWU registered students. This course emphasizes learning how to create, read, and interpret geologic maps. Other important goals include:
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 limited data and 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.
