Learning outcomes

The course aims at providing students with the tools to understand the three-dimensional distribution of the geologic bodies, their genesis and their relationships with the tectonic structures. The sedimentary processes, as transport and the deposition, in different terrestrial and marine environments. To understand the physical processes at different space and time scales. The recent geomorphological evolution, which have a direct impact on human infrastructure and activities, on environmental impact and on the exploration and exploitation of resources. The cartographic representation of geological bodies in the field and in cross-section reconstructions together with three-dimensional reconstructions, also through the integration between surface and subsurface data.
