Marine Geophysical Mapping Methods
The course addresses marine geological mapping with geophysical methods and sediment sampling.
The course includes theories on the geophysical mapping methods applied, a field mapping component, geophysical data post-processing and geological interpretation. There is a specific focus on mapping of the unconsolidated seafloor sediments and bottom topography using acoustic methods including single and multibeam echosounders and side-scan sonar.
One written exam, and a written report from the field trip.
