About the course

The processes of erosion, transport and deposition of clastic, biogenic and chemical sediments in continental and coastal, and open marine environments. The formation of sedimentary features (e.g. structures, textures, mineralogical compositions) that can be used to interpret depositional environment and facies for litho-, bio-, seismic- and sequence stratigraphy subdivisions and in correlation. The evolution of Earth and the biosphere.

Training in communication is an integrated part of the course.
