Quaternary Sedimentology

  • 7.5 credits

This course deals with sedimentological processes, with a special focus on Quaternary deposits.

You will learn about stratigraphical methods, both in the field and in the lab (including section logging, sampling strategies, lab-analytical and dating methods). You will practice your skills in the field and get a better understanding of the linkages between deposits – their formative processes – and the environment.

The course is part (elective course) of the Master's Programme in Polar Landscapes and Quaternary Climate, but it can also be studied as an optional course within other programmes.
