09.68.11 Introduction to the Geology and Geography of Iceland
Course number: 09.68.11
Faculty/Department: Department of Geosciences
Semester: Fall
Academic year: 2003-2004
Credits: 5 credits
ECTS credits: 10 credits
Type: Course
Level: Undergraduate
Lines/Tracks:
Course description:
The course starts with a five-day study tour in South-Iceland at the end of August, preceded by one-day orientation lectures and preparation. The tour focuses on both constructive and destructive geological processes as well as human activities in the region. Following the tour, an intensive program of lectures covering the main aspects of Icelandic tectonics, geology, and geography, will occupy three and a half weeks. The last half week of September is devoted to writing up a report on the Study tour and, finally, completing a one-day home examination.
