Stockholm University's main campus is in the Frescati area, north of the city centre. While most of our departments and offices are located here, there are also campus areas in other parts of the city.
For new international students
The course covers laboratory and in-situ methods for measuring standard petyrophysical properties of marine sediments. These include, pore space properties and permeability, as well the elastic, geocmechanical, electrical and thermal properties. The course will look at quantitative relationships between these properties, and through numerical exercises, the students will learn how they are commonly applied within industry and research to investigate different marine geological processes. Re-exams may be held on campus.
Course literatureNote that the course literature can be changed up to two months before the start of the course.
