Semester of Instruction

Spring. This is a course with limited capacity.

Objectives and Content

The course comprises field exercises focusing on field methodology in relation to structural geology/tectonics, sedimentology/sequence stratigraphy and reservoir technology/reservoir modelling. Understanding fluid flow in sandstone reservoirs in light of these aspects is essential. The course will use problem-based learning (PBL) where the students work in groups solving relevant problems related to real data. The group work starts prior to the field trip and the groups will also work together after the field trip when finalizing the reports.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the course GEOV352 the student should have:

  • increased and integrated knowledge related to
    • structural geology/tectonics,
    • sedimentology/sequence stratigraphy and
    • reservoir technology/reservoir modeling

Required Previous Knowledge

Bachelor¿s degree in geology/geophysics.
