Marine Geological Field-and Laboratory Course
Semester of Instruction
Spring. This is a course with limited capacity.
Objectives and Content
The course gives a practical introduction to the application of marine geological and marine geophysical instrumentation and field methods (seismic, multibeam and sediment sampling). There will be a theoretical introduction on the methods applied in the field and on the laboratories. The students must carry out an interpretation on the acquired/retrieved acoustic data set and in addition describe and analyze the sediment core material.
After completing the course GEOV231 the student should be able to:
- plan a survey for acquiring shallow seismic data, bathymetry data and sediment cores
- perform interpretation and field- and laboratory analyses on the collected data
- present the dataset, methods, results and geological interpretation in a report were both the stratigraphy and the geological processes in the study area are described
Required Previous Knowledge
Principles of marine geology and geophysics.
The grading scale used is A to F. Grade A is the highest passing grade in the grading scale, grade F is a fail.
