Marine Geotechnics, 7.5 credits

About the course

This course introduces students to the basic laboratory methods for measuring the geotechnical properties of marine sediments. This includes measurements of index properties, undrained shear strength, consolidation and permeability. Students will learn how to integrate these results with geophysical data to describe the bottom stratigraphy, geotechnical properties and geological history of a sampling site.
