Tectonics: a branch of geology concerned with the structure of the crust of a planet (as earth) or moon and especially with the formation of folds and faults in it. Structural Geology is study of rock deformation. Study of how the lithosphere is bent, broken, and deformed during plate tectonics. Structural Geology is.

Structural Geology is important for understanding the location of earthquakes, Formation of mountains and Tectonic history of the earth.
The primary goal of structural geology is to uncover information about the history of deformation strain in the rocks using measurements of present day rock geometries, and ultimately, to understand the stress field that resulted in the observed strain and geometries.
Students study diverse geometries and types of structures in the field and learn to relate them to the deformation regime, with emphasis on the regional geology structural geology and tectonics Bergen.
However, laboratory re-search is also an important part of structural geology. Natural rocks can be shortened or sheared in special rigs designed to work at high pressure and temperature.
Additionally veins and other structural features such as domes, unconformities, and salt tectonic features will be reviewed. Various structural features will be structural geology and tectonics during the day two exercise.
Day 3 Structural Expression, Mapping and Modeling — During day three the expression of faults, folds and various structural attributes within the surface seismic data and within borehole logging data will be reviewed.
