This class looks at Sedimentary Rocks and the structures they form, including how organic matter from plants and animals is buried and makes fossils and hydrocarbon reserves. We also look at how faults can be identified by offset layering.

  • To discover and learn without realising it, because you are having fun! By the end of this course students will be able to explain where the different kinds of Sedimentary Rocks are made and how they interact in layers to form beautiful rock formations. We'll also look at how these layers can be pushed out of sequence by faults and how animals and plants can get trapped to produce hydrocarbon reserves and fossils.
I have a BSc in Geology and an MSc in Geophysics and have chosen the most interesting and exciting subjects to teach to get young minds excited about Earth Sciences.
