Formato del curso On-site
Fecha 2020-11-02 - 2020-12-06
Costo 17500 SEK

The course addresses the development and morphology of the ocean basins.

The course covers:

  • marine sediments as archives of global change; distribution, composition, stratigraphy and chronology
  • marine microfossils; types and applications
  • the modern climate system and links to marine geology; ocean/atmosphere circulation, the hydrosphere and cryosphere, oceanic and atmospheric biogeochemical cycles
  • physical, biological and geochemical palaeoceanographic proxies- palaeoceanographic history of the the last 150 million years


For admission to the course, knowledge equivalent to 45 ECTS credits in geology or earth sciences, including the courses Marine and geophysical mapping methods, 7.5 ECTS credits (GG4121). Information about entry requirements on

After completing the course, the student is expected to be able to:

  • explain the different types of marine sediments, the controls on their distribution, and dating methods
  • explain the different types of marine microfossils and their applications in environmental reconstruction
  • explain the modern ocean-climate system and the governing mechanisms behind changes to this ondifferent geological timescales
  • explain different paleoceanographic proxies and their application in palaeoclimatology
  • interpret the main trends and events in ocean-climate development over the last 150 million years
