Competencies and objectives

PROVISIONAL INFORMATION. PENDING APPROVAL BY THE DEPARTMENT COUNCIL.

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

 

Es una asignatura en la que se introducen los principales grupos de microfósiles, aprendiendo a reconocerlos y utilizarlos para la resolución de problemas de caracter bioestrátigráfico y de reconstrucciones paleoambientales. Una parte importante de la asignatura se dedicará al análisis de microfacies en lámina delgada, trabajo en el que los alumnos podrán aplicar e interrelacionar los conocimientos de paleontología, mineralogía, sedimentología y estratigrafía adquiridos a lo largo de los estudios de grado.

Nota: se aconseja tener aprobadas las siguientes asignaturas: Paleontología, Estratigrafía y Sedimentología
