Marine Geology

The aim of this course is to make you familiar with how ocean basins and margins developed through time.


Of interest are their geological structure, their water mass properties, water mass circulation, and sedimentary processes shaping the seafloor. You will learn about the dynamics of ocean circulation and sedimentary processes from fjords to the deep sea. A two day cruise on board RV "Helmer Hanssen" provides insight in marine geology.
