Course context for academic year 2018-19

La Petrología Sedimentaria 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 Mineralogía (2º curso), Sedimentología (2º curso), Estratigrafía (2º curso), Petrología Ígnea y Metamórfica (3ercurso), Geoquímica y Prospección Geoquímica (3er curso) y Petrología Aplicada (4º curso).
