GEON04

Global and Regional Marine Geology,15 ECTS credits

Do you want to learn more about the oceans, how they function today and how they functioned in the past? Then this master level course is for you. It focuses initially on marine sedimentation processes and depositional environments, circulation patterns, nutrient cycles, and marine life habitats and ecosystems. Thereafter we study how the oceans developed over time scales of millions of years and how we can use the marine sedimentary record to study past climate and environmental changes. The second half of the course has a regional focus and includes an expedition where we sample sea floor sediments that will be analyzed in our laboratories. The results from the expedition will be described in a written report. The course includes a written exam.
