TECHNICAL WRITING TIPS
GENERAL WRITING REQUIREMENTS
1) I posted a 6-minute video tutorial on how to use the Google Earth field trips: https://montclair.hosted.panopto.com/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=09d25ab1-b6be-4508-8596-abac01452c4f
2) Examples of field trip reports (these are from a different school and different outcrops, but same type of class) :
3) For a quick reminder on depositional environments are and tectonic settings for sedimentary basins see here in Ch. 6 in Physical Geology:
I will quickly go over these on Friday, but it would be even better is if you checked the following before attending to class:
1) Do you have any technical issues using Google Earth field trips? If yes, get in touch ASAP so we can resolve it
2) From reading the first couple of pages of the two examples of reports, do you understand the general structure of a field trip report (geological setting, observations, interpretations) or do you have any questions to ask on Friday?
3) From reading Ch. 6 in Physical Geology, do you understand how depositional environments are interpreted from observations (lithology, sedimentary structures, fossils/allochems) and how sedimentary basins relate to tectonics? This is the general framework that is typically used in field reports of sedimentary rocks.
IMPORTANT: I will be putting underneath links to the google earth with the localities we will need to talk about I would like the project to be a B or a B+ but this is kind of hard organizing what it is that needs to be done since theres also some localities that have powerpoints or documents. I would like the project to match up with the samples that were given up top somewhat.
