KurzbeschreibungKartierung von Sedimentgesteinen und stratigraphischen Einheiten mit der anschliessenden Erstellung einer geologischen Karte im Massstab 1:10.000. Verfassen eines Berichts, der die Fazies und den Charakter der geologischen Einheiten, die quartären Oberflächenablagerungen und die tektonischen Strukturen dokumentiert.
LernzielDie Studierenden lernen, wie man kartierbare Einheiten im gewählten Kartierungsmaßstab definiert. Sie sind in der Lage, stratigraphische Einheiten und damit verbundene tektonische Elemente sowie Ablagerungen des Quartärs, hauptsächlich alluvialen, glazialen und gravitationsbedingten Ursprungs, zu erfassen, zu beschreiben und zu kartieren.
Inhalt7-tägiger Feldkurs, einschliesslich individueller Zeit mit Instruktoren im Felde, Arbeitssitzungen und Diskussionen nach dem Abendessen, sowie das Verfassen von Berichten.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesVoraussetzung: Erfolgreicher Abschluss von 651-3982-00L Geologischer Feldkurs I.

Studierende Geographie bezahlen den vollen Tarif (keine Subventionen).

Lecture on July 19 - 21
field course in the Graubünden July 22 - 27
final lectures and exam July 28 - 29
3 KP4V + 2PM. Handy, V. Picotti
KurzbeschreibungThe course is aimed at students in the Earth Sciences engaged in geodynamic research, from surface processes to crustal motion to mantle dynamics. It conveys the essentials of Alpine-Mediterranean geology while bridging the gap between regional geology and modern,
process-oriented geodynamic research.

651-4134-01LTectonic Geomorphology Field Course Information Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Prerequisite: 651-4134-00L Tectonic Geomorphology (lecture)

Priority is given to D-ERDW students. If space is available UZH Geography and Earth System Sciences students may attend this field course at full cost.
3 KP6PV. Picotti
KurzbeschreibungCourse covers the applications of tectonic geomorphology. Topics include the landscape response to an earthquake, use of fluvial terraces and other geomorphic markers to map uplift, topographic evolution over active structures and landscape evolution of active mountain ranges. Methods include field mapping and description of key outcrops.
LernzielTo learn practical aspects of modern tectonic geomorphology. The field course will be combined with classroom and computer-based analysis to provide hands-on experience with geomorphic data, analysis and modelling techniques. We will work as a group to address the practical questions regarding evidence for recent deformation of the northern Apennines as an integrated field and modeling study. We will learn to use a variety of geomorphic and tectonic data to map uplift rates and patterns and use this to infer subsurface faulting kinematics.
InhaltCourse includes a 9 day fieldtrip (in second half-semester) to be integrated with the lecture component. Students are invited to register for both components. Fieldtrip will involve collecting geologic and geomorphic field data from active structures in the Northern Apennines.
LiteraturRequired Textbook: Tectonic Geomorphology, Burbank and Anderson, Blackwell.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesAlthough separated from the theory part for practical reasons, students have to register for both lecture and field course. Fieldtrip will be held during 1 week of the semester, typically in early May.

KurzbeschreibungStudents will be trained for 10 days in the field analysis of sedimentary rocks. They will learn how to measure sections, they will combine facies analysis with analysis of sedimentary structures in the field. The area of study selected for this course changes from year to year.
LernzielThe students will be able to analyse and describe marine sedimentary rocks in the field and they will be able to reconstruct their depositional setting.
InhaltThe students will learn how to analyze sedimentary rocks in the field. The field course will include investigations of marine carbonates and siliciclastics in an alpine setting.
LiteraturWill be distributed before the course
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesBSc in Earth Sciences
