This course deals with mechanics of deformation of the crust and mantle, with emphasis on the importance of different rheological descriptions: brittle, elastic, linear and nonlinear fluids, and viscoelastic.
Assignments and Exams
Problem sets will be given out approximately weekly. We will also discuss papers from journals. There will be a take-home final exam.
Grades will be based 2/3 on the homework, 1/3 on the final.
You are encouraged to discuss problem sets to help each other on approaches, etc. But do not copy answers - work them out yourself. Do not discuss the exam.
