JEO 211E - Mineralogy

Course Objectives

Minerals are the “bricks” of materials that make up the earth and all other solid bodies in the universe. They also make up various rocks. Minerals are also the raw materials on which much of the society’s technological development and economic productivity are based. Therefore, they are of crucial importance to human civilization.
Most of the minerals are solid crystalline substances. Studying minerals helps us to understand the origin of the Earth and the processes which have been shaping it.
The aim of this course is to teach the students of the Dept. of Geological Engineering the classification, occurrence, composition, origin, formation and economical importance of the minerals, as well as the igneous and metamorphic rocks.
The course specifically focuses on the description and classification of minerals and igneous/metamorphic rocks with special reference to their origin and distribution in the Earth’s crust and mantle.

Course Description

For earth scientists, a basic knowledge of mineralogy is of crucial importance because only it can provide them with vital information about nomenclature and classification of minerals & rocks, basic terminology and a number of other important issues e.g. understanding the origin of minerals and rocks, tectonic setting in which they occur and their geological evolution.
