Winter 2010 Geology at UC Davis

This winter quarter I will be studying sediments & stratigraphy (GEL 109/109L), environmental geology (GEL 134), and the "history of life" (GEL 103/103L).

I will be collecting a lot of knowledge and tools this quarter.  Thus, as I progress, I will post photographs from my extensive photograph library and try to explain them.

Last quarter I took classes very fundamental to geology: earth materials and optical mineralogy.  However, it is rather difficult to blog on the scale of minerals.  Fortunately this quarter will finally allow me to apply principles of geology to the many sweeping landscapes I have photographed over the last decade.  By the next academic year (2010-2011) I will be taking structure and should be able to interpret geological phenomenon even more.

The image above is of the sandstone formations at Sächsische Schweiz National Park in Saxony, Germany.  I took this photograph during my 2009 summer vacation.
