Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2023-24

Recursos Minerales Marinos correponde al itinerario de "Recursos Marino". En esta asignatura se introduce al alumno en el estudio de los recursos minerales marinos (descripción, génesis, métodos de estudio), en márgenes continentales y en cuencas oceánicas, con énfasis en los aspectos prospectivos y de explotación, así como en el impacto ambiental de las explotaciones. Recomendable haber superado las asignaturas de Sedimentología, Geología Marina y Oceanografía Física.
