Geological mapping

The course aims to introduce the basis of the field work organization, the principles, methods and techniques of observation depending on the studied terrains (sedimentary, magmatic, metamorphic, deformed of non-deformed) and the investigation tasks (scale, considering drilling, seismic data, etc.). During the course various aspects of geological field mapping are discussed as the interpretation and estimation of the obtained data and the requirements for drawing up and reporting the results according to the specific character of the study.

The extramural work is related to preparation of a model geological map and a plan for report on training topographic base map.
