The area mapped by students at the Oliver field school contains sedimentary, igneous (volcanic and plutonic), and metamorphic rocks with a complex 3D geometry reflecting both primary sedimentological and igneous processes, and the overprinting effects of deformation and metamorphism. Because of this, we highly recommend that students complete all of EOSC 320, 321, 322, and 323 before attending the Oliver field school.
