Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course will be very wide ranging, and will allow participants to play to their strengths and interests (regarding physical sedimentology, geochemistry, geochronology, geodynamics) as appropriate. Because of the extent of the literature on this topic, we will probably approach the subject material on a themed basis, with the themes connected to specific (with emphasis on recent) papers. Participants will gain the opportunity to practice presenting, discussing, and defending subject material that is probably slightly out of their area of expertise. This skill- gaining rapid familiarity and overview of a subject- is a vital transferable skill to the workplace for all geoscience graduates.

Assessment and permitted materials

Adequate participation in the seminars is required, including presentation of material suggested by the course leader, for successful completion.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The course will probably mostly consist of PhD level students. It is expected that participants will have a Bachelors diploma at the beginning. Ability to discuss and communicate in English is important.

Examination topics

Various, but pertaining to the general theme of the sedimentological aspects of Precambrian glaciations.

Reading list

Papers will be provided on a session-by-session basis and will form the skeleton of the course.
