Sedimentary Geology

Course Code: ES2004
Course Description:
This course introduces students to process geomorphology, sedimentology and stratigraphic principles, and provides tools for the interpretation of sediments and sedimentary rocks. The first phase of the course starts with individual grains, sediment composition and sedimentary structures. The second phase moves to the conceptual processes of formation, transport and deposition of sediment. The next section build s on this foundation and is applied to develop conceptual models for the full range of landscapes and sedimentary environments on earth, from desert dunes to deep seas muds and coral reefs to gravel bed rivers. The final phase introduces sequence stratigraphy and sedimentary basin analysis
