Semester of Instruction
Every second spring, even number years. This is a course with limited capacity.
Objectives and Content
The course gives a basic introduction to field geological methods in sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy in an area with excellent exposures. The methods are demonstrated for different tectonic regimes and sedimentary environments, for the latter both in Quaternary and pre-Quaternary successions. The structural geological part focuses on fold- and thrust structures and strike-faults at small and large scale. Students work in groups with the task to describe and interpret rocks with regards to sedimentary processes, paleo-environment and structural style and history.
After completing the course GEOV362 the student should be able to
- demonstrate basic knowledge in field geological methods in structural geology and sedimentology
- describe and analyse a sedimentary succession with focus on interpretation of depositional processes and environments
- describe and analyse rocks with focus on kinematics and structural geological history
- discuss basin history with background in structural geological and sedimentological interpretations
