12.475 Plate Tectonics and Continental Deformation


Class Info

First half covers basic elements of plate tectonics, including sea floor spreading, magnetic anomalies, and subduction zone. Second half covers implications of plate tectonics for continental processes, including continental rifting, continental collision, and mountain building. Emphasis will be on correlating plate tectonic and continental processes using specific examples from around the world.

This class has no prerequisites.

12.475 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by L. H. Royden.

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

In the Spring 2014 Subject Evaluations, 12.475 was rated 7.0 out of 7.0. You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Lecture 13: Congestion control site or on the 12.475 Stellar site.
