Course description for study year 2022-2023. Please note that changes may occur.
The topic will be decided on an individual basis and depends on the field of specialisation of the PhD student. The project topic may be a subfield of one or several of the following geoscientific disciplines. Also subfields of geoscientific disciplines, or disciplines related to geosciences that are not mentioned here are possible:
Sequence stratigraphy and depositional systems, structural geology, petrography and geochemistry including mineralogy and isotope geochemistry, exploration geophysics and petrophysics, subsurface interpretation, geostatistics and decision analysis, construction of geomodels, and geospatial applications.
After the course, the student should have fundamental and specialised knowledge in the project topic. The student should fully understand the fundamentals of the used methods and the many aspects of data processing and interpretation. S/he should understand and be able to communicate the scientific and / or industrial importance of the project results on a broader scale than the actual project topic.
Required prerequisite knowledge
Master degree in Geosciences or Petroleum Engineering
Completed courses at BSc or MSc level including specialisation tools or topics relevant for the PhD project. Alternatively or additionally, first-hand experience with these tools or topics is recommended.
Form of assessment
Passed / Not Passed
