About the Course

All geological materials such as ice, soil, rocks, melts are deformed when subjected to drag, shear or compression. They crack, fold, pull out and flatten. These structures can be used both for reading the earth's history, as well as tools for groundwater, ore and oil exploration as well as construction in soil and rock. The course studies both theoretical and field geological (especially the bedrock) deformation and structures.
