Subject of course

  • structure and composition of the Earth, in particular of the lithospheric plates,
  • plate tectonics as origin of rock formation,
  • weathering and erosion, hydrogeological aspects of selected rocks

Examination modalities

The lecture is evaluated through a short presentation (15 minutes) at the end of the semester - the students can work this presentation individually or in small groups (up to three persons per team). The presentation refers to the explanation of a geological feature or activity selected by each team.
