NGEA09038U Current Advances in Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology and Geochemistry
MSc Programme in Geology-Geoscience
Elemental and isotopic quantitative geochemical methods and their application to petrological problems, field methods, petrography, physical volcanology, petrological case stories, aspects of the petrology of the continental and oceanic crust and upper mantle.
- detailed knowledge of petrological high-temperature processes;
- detailed knowledge of selected current ideas on the formation of igneous and metamorphic rocks and complexes;
- knowledge of the development of ideas related to the evolution of the crust-mantle system.
- extract volcanological data during field work;
- model selected geochemical and physical processes in petrology;
- manipulate and evaluate geochemical data.
- interpret petrological processes based on field observations;
- integrate field observations with petrographic and geochemical laboratory data;
- demonstrate an understanding of deep earth and volcanological processes as integrated parts of Earth evolution.
