Description

12.524 is a survey of the mechanical behavior of rocks in natural geologic situations.

Topics will include a brief survey of field evidence of rock deformation, physics of plastic deformation in minerals, brittle fracture and sliding, and pressure-solution processes. We will compare results of field petrologic and structural studies to data from experimental structural geology.
