Welcome to the Sedimentology course pages. The slides, class notes and assignments are largely by Prof. Angelo Rossi. I am very grateful for his permission to use them 

2022 - Sedimentary Geology - CH-131 - B

General Information

Module Credits: 7.50

Official Module Description: 

The module is comprised of essential geoscience courses that represent the backbone of a sound university education in the geosciences. This includes key lectures in Sedimentology, Structural Geology, Volcanism and Metamorphism, complemented by on-campus (tutorials) and off-campus (FieldLab/excursion) practicals. Based upon the lectures which provide the students with the necessary background information and theoretical framework, key elements of this module are hands-on tutorials and an off-campus practical (2-day excursion) during which the students are introduced to geological methods and techniques, resulting in a close combination of teaching theoretical knowledge and essential practical skills in a real-life environment.

Course Description:

In this course the students will be made familiar with the basics concepts of sedimentary geology and stratigraphy. Focus will also be on the identification and recognition of sedimentary features and on an understanding of modern and ancient depositional processes and environments.
