G690: Organic Rich Shale Sedimentology (1 cr)

This class is designed to explore and discuss a range of issues
relating to the origin of black shales, including sedimentary features
and their implication, geophysical properties, petrographic
constraints, and geochemical perspectives. The class will focus on
concrete examples and include demonstration of core description, hand
specimen study, and microscopic study. The class will also include a
field trip to key outcrops of Late Devonian black shales.
