This course introduces the student to geological mapping techniques by having them learn how to describe map sections and outcrops. Students are first taken through the stratigraphy of the Cape Fold Belt and taught the techniques of orientation in the field using the compass and GPS as well as using the compass to measure the orientation of beds; strike and dip measurement. The six days field school covers outcropping rocks at Seapoint, Kloofnek and Table Mountain in Cape Town followed by a 2 day mapping exercise in McGregor.
