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.
Instruction consists of lectures, seminars, exercises, laboratory work and field trips.
The course include teaching in the field, which entail additional cost for the student.
For details see syllabus.
Plagiarism and regulations for disciplinary matters
As a student you must be conscientious about clearly accounting for the material used in the texts that are submitted for examination. To use another person’s expressions or ideas without stating the source is plagiarism. To translate and/or change some words in someone else’s text and present it as your own is also a form of plagiarism. Plagiarism is considered cheating and if discovered in an exam or paper, the exam or paper will be failed immediately and disciplinary measures may be taken.
Any student who is caught cheating or disrupting academic activities may be suspended from lectures and exams for a period of up to six months. The Vice Chancellor or the Disciplinary Council decide whether the student is to be subject to any disciplinary measures.
