12.451 Seminar in Regional Tectonics


Class Info

Applies techniques of tectonic synthesis to study the roles of particular orogenic belts in global plate tectonics. Treats different applications in different terms, so that the subject may be taken repeatedly to learn the range of orogenic responses to temporal and spatial variations of activity at plate boundaries.

This class has no prerequisites.

12.451 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by B. C. Burchfiel and L. H. Royden.

This class counts for a total of 9 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
