Quaternary geology Quaternary formations; fluvial; glacial; gravitational  GEOL303 L2 Earth Sciences Autumn Study of fluvial, glacial and gravity formations from a morphological and sedimentological point of view. Fieldwork and construction of geological cross-sections. French  LST download
Field work Mapping; sedimentary rocks; folds  GEOL403 L2 Earth Sciences Spring 5-days of geological mapping in sedimentary terrains (Provence). A geological map and 2 cross-sections are constructed based on field observations. Identification of structures to map and learning about the measuring in sedimentary terrains. Field observations (petrology, structures) are synthesized and interpreted (chronology of the tectonic events) in a final report.

Tectonics 1 Field geology; Alps; Geodynamics; magmatism and metamorphism; sedimentation; tectonics GEOL504 L3 Earth Sciences Autumn Field observation of the various geological domains of the Western Alps : extensional structures related to the opening of the Tethys Ocean; remnants of the oceanic crust that separated France from Italy; metamorphism and sedimentation associated with subduction and collision processes. A 5-day field trip is completed by lectures and exercises on geological maps to provide a complete vision of the Alps formation processes.
