I’m going to be 100% honest. I spent an hour and a half looking at this slide and others like it today in lab, and I still only know 70% of what’s going on here. I am terrible at this aspect of geology. Fortunately, I feel smart when I am sitting at a microscope.
I am going to meet with one of my professors this week about possible senior thesis stuff. Need to see if I am cut out for that path. Currently looking at the potential of doing something with reflection seismology. Who knows though, I have a few professors I want to bug about this topic (thesis, not reflection seismology).
