Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2018-19

La Geoquímica y Prospección Geoquímica es una materia de carácter básico, fundamental en la formación de un graduado en Geología. Los conocimientos adquiridos en esta asignatura podrán aplicarse en numerosos ámbitos de la actividad profesional (geología del subsuelo, recursos naturales, investigación, geología aplicada a la ingeniería, entre otros).
La asignatura está coordinada con el resto de las asignaturas del Grado de Geología, especialmente con Cristalografía (2º curso), Mineralogía (2º curso), Petrología Sedimentaria (3er curso), Petrología Ígnea y Metamórfica (3er curso) y Petrología Aplicada (4º curso).

  • CE3 : Identify and characterise the properties of different terrestrial materials using geological methods and their corresponding instrumental techniques.
  • CE30 : Understand past, present and future interactions between the natural environment and human beings, as well as analysing and predicting their future.
  • CE33 : Study and plan the rational exploration of geological and energy resources.
  • CE36 : Prepare reports and studies dealing with the exploration, research, production, transformation and control of geological and hydrogeological resources.
  • CE7 : Understand the history of the Earth and of Life from their origins to the present day.
  • CE8 : Understand the techniques for dating rocks and geological processes.


Generic UA Competences

  • CGUA1 : Acquire the computer knowledge needed for storing, analysing, synthesising and modelling the data required for the degree course.
