Quaternary Sedimentology, 7.5 credits

About the course

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 of the master programme in Quaternary Science and Climate Development, but it can also be studied as an optional course within other programmes.
