  MINERALOGY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

 

Mineralogía es una asignatura del segundo cuatrimestre del segundo curso del grado de Geología y está enmarcada en el Módulo Fundamental Específico.

La mineralogía es una ciencia basada en el conocimiento preciso de la composición química y de la estructura atómica que caracteriza cada especie mineral, y en el sentido de éstas en el medio geológico. Dada la sensibilidad de los minerales a los cambios fisico-químicos que se producen durante los procesos geológicos, las asociaciones minerales que constituyen las rocas son la memoria de la historia geológica de estas, y por ello, también de la Corteza Terrestre. Es fundamental que al comienzo de unos estudios en Geología se adquiera un conocimiento preciso del concepto de especie mineral y la habilidad para saber identificar correctamente los minerales. Los contenidos desarrollados en la asignatura Mineralogía, proporcionará a los alumnos la formación básica necesaria para los contenidos del resto de asignaturas de los Módulos Fundamental, Complementario y Avanzado.
