  TECHTONICS

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

La Tectónica es la rama de las Ciencias Geológicas que se ocupa de la deformación de la corteza terrestre a una escala regional o global. Esta disciplina relaciona las estructuras geológicas con los movimientos (cinemática) y las fuerzas (dinámica) que las han originado.

La Tectónica es una materia de carácter optativo, pero importante en la formación de un graduado en Geología. Los conocimientos adquiridos en esta asignatura podrán aplicarse en numerosos ámbitos de la actividad profesional (cartografía geológica, 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 las asignaturas de Cartografía Geológica II y III (3er curso), Geología Histórica y Regional (3er curso) y Geología Estructural I y II (3er curso).
