EESC 3370 Optical Mineralogy (Fall: 2 )
This course is an introduction to polarizing light microscopy (PLM) and its application to mineral identifications in petrographic thin sections. Students will learn the basic concepts of polarized light microscopy with the objective to identify isotropic, uniaxial, and biaxial minerals in rocks using a polarized light microscope. This course is equivalent to the first part of GE 570.
