Sedimentology and Stratigraphy (GEO110)
GEO110 examines different depositional environments, and different types of sediment and sedimentary rocks, their genesis and deposition that are fundamental to the understanding of reservoir rocks. The purpose is to familiarise the students with basic concepts and geological processes that lead to the formation of sedimentary rocks, such as sediment transport, deposition and diagenesis. The course also gives an introduction to stratigraphic principles and methods.
The course includes one week-long field trip and several short optional geological field trips. Participation fees may be charged to cover transport expenses for the short optional trips.
