Description

Master’s Programme in Geology and Geophysics is responsible for the course.

Optional course, Lithospheric properties course package.

The course is available to students from other degree programmes.

Physical Properties of Rocks

After the course, the students should have knowledge on magnetic minerals, how they are magnetized and why they can preserve ancient magnetic field. The students have learnt different laboratory methods, multicomponent analyses, handling of statistical analyses and interpretation of data. They have learnt how the plate movements are calculated and in course exercises they will make continental reconstructions.

The recommended time for completion is in the first or second fall of Master`s studies.

The course is offered every other year in periods I-II (2017, 2019...).

The course covers basics of geomagnetism, paleomagnetism, rock magnetism and plate tectonics.

In excercises: actual problems, computer excercises, presentations by students.

Scale 1-5; 60% exam, 40% exercises.

Final exam, exercises, presentation based an excercises
