Abstract

Most courses in Canadian universities are single term or semester courses. The most common offerings are: (i) at the elementary level, sedimentary petrography taught as part of a general course in igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic petrography, and a course in "Sedimentation and Stratigraphy"; (ii) at the more advanced level, Petroleum Geology (or Fossil Fuels), Stratigraphy, and Sedimentology. Many departments offer a variety of more specialized courses, and few offer a general year-long course in the physical and chemical principles of Sedimentology.
