Semester of Instruction

Every second spring, uneven number years. The course runs only if enough students enrol

Objectives and Content

The course will focus on numerical modelling of plate tectonic problems such as extension, collision. Simple modeling techniques will be used to study thermal and mechanical evolution during lithosphere deformation.

Learning Outcomes

The objective of the course is to give students knowledge of basic numerical modelling techniques with application to the thermal and mechanical evolution of the lithosphere

Required Previous Knowledge

Knowledge in Geodynamics and Basin Modelling

Recommended Previous Knowledge

Knowledge in computational methods in solid earth physics (GEOV219)

Grading Scale

The grading scale used is A to F. Grade A is the highest passing grade in the grading scale, grade F is a fail.
