- Sea water systems (ocean basins, wind and ocean circulation, waves and tides, coasts)
- Particles in water, sedimentation and sediments (sea-, lake-, river sediments and soils)

Required prerequisite knowledge
|Written midterm exam||1/2||3 hours||A - F||Dictionary. |
|Written final exam||1/2||3 hours||A - F||Dictionary. |
All assessment parts must be passed in order to obtain a final grade in the course.
There will be no resit exam for the midterm exam. Students who do not pass the midterm exam may retake this the next time the course is lectured.
Completion of mandatory lab assignments connected to the field course are to be made at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published on Canvas. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated to the laboratory personnel as soon as possible. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times can be made, unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed.
Failure to complete the assigned field and labs or not having them approved will result in non approval of the course.
