UE Multidisciplinary field workshop

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :

Description

This is a 10-day field course in the Alps between Grenoble and the Brandon area. This multidisciplinary field workshop is organised around the joint application of previously acquired geological observation tools and analysis techniques (mapping, structural analysis, sedimentology, metamorphic petrology) in order to lead to an exploration-type field synthesis. This workshop in inspired by industry training courses and focuses on multi-scale, three-dimensional observation, integration with geodynamic models et the link with geophysical approaches in present-day analogs. It also permits familiarising the students with digital geological data-acquisition tools (digital mapping and measurements using tablets).

Prerequisites

Basics in field mapping, structural analysis, sedimentology, field petrology
