Learn to visualize and draw the rock formations that define our landscapes. Geologists do this by creating maps, cross-sections, and three dimensional diagrams to show the relationships between layers of rocks, faults, and other features. In this class we will look at maps of local geology and study samples of the rock types typical of the Monterey Bay area. Participants will then learn the process of creating cross-sections and stratigraphic columns and draw their own. This class will help you to better understand geologic maps and create your own geologic illustrations, providing you with the tools needed to better engage with geology in the field and record your observations on paper.
