Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2018-19

Se adquieren conocimientos útiles para la comprensión de los procesos geológicos tanto activos (actuales) como los que han actuado en la historia geológica de la superficie de la Tierra, y para la valoración de recursos econónicos, de riesgos geológicos y de aspectos del medio ambiente. La Sedimentología está relacionada y coordinada con otras asignaturas del Grado en Geología, particularmente con la Estratigrafía, Paleontología, Geomorfología, Petrología y Geología Histórica.
