STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF SEDIMENTARY COVERS
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The aim of the course is to provide students with the fundamental knowledge required for detecting and analysing deformations of the sedimentary covers , on both macro- and meso-scales. Students will learn to perform a structural survey, on a macro- and meso-scale, and analyse the deformations observed.
Basic knowledge of stratigraphy, structural geology and tectonics
Course contents summary
Field activities with macro- and mesostructural surveys along a normal fault zone.
Field activities with macro- and mesostructural surveys of soft sediments deformation.
