Topics covered

The module comprises three parts. The first two parts look at large scale structures found in sedimentary basins where students are introduced to the types of structures found in different structural settings through a combination of learning materials and the interpretation of seismic data and remotely sensed imagery. The third part involves an introduction to the theory of section balancing and structural restoration techniques and their practical application using a combination of paper based and workstation based exercises.
