UE Sedimentology field course

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


During this course you will familiarise yourself with the evolution of a sedimentary basin through field observations. We will study, at various scales (hand sample, outcrop, landscape), the distribution of sedimentary facies in the basin through space and time, paying particular attention to the effects of changing accommodation space, as a result of for example sea-level variations. We will study the basin along a transect from the basin margin to the deeper water areas.
