Pre-departure information

New in Sweden

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.

The course deals with:

  • Sediment characterisation for marine offshore site investigations.
  • Index properties and classification schemes for marine sediments.
  • Undrained shear strength of marine sediments.
  • Consolidation and permeability of marine sediments.

Spring term 21 | The 2021 spring course will be given on campus. Alternative methods for classroom lectures may be used depending on the University regulations regarding COVID-19. Laboratory work is a compulsory part of the course and will be conducted in small groups. If you are unable to participate in on-campus activities, you should plan to take an alternate course this spring.
