Stratigraphy is the study of sedimentary rocks and what they can tell us about our planet's past. While studying the geological record is as old as earth science itself, modern technology is allowing geologists to dig deeper than they have ever been able to before. If you need some assistance keeping all of the techniques at your disposal straight, Varsity Tutors can refer you to a knowledgeable Stratigraphy tutor today.
Here are some of the things you may review during Stratigraphy tutoring sessions:
- Sedimentary Rock Formation
- Principles of Sedimentation (and their impacts on spatial and temporal scales)
- Early Diagenesis
- Clastic Transport and Fluid Flow
- Geochemical Stratigraphy
- Diffuse Spectral Reflectance (non-invasive sediment logging methods)
Most Stratigraphy courses have two distinct components: academic knowledge and field research. The academic side of the equation involves a lot of assigned reading, so your Stratigraphy tutor may teach you active reading techniques to help you retain more of the information. For example, taking notes as you go along may help you differentiate between important information and less relevant material. You can also jot down any questions you have for your tutor so that you don't forget to ask!
