Faroe Islands field course: a window to the geology of the Northeast Atlantic

when 3 August 2022 - 12 August 2022
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 138

The course uses the Faroe Island as an example to study aspects of:

- Volcanism

- Sedimentology

- Geotechnics

- Geohazards

- Sedimentary basins

- Coal and hydrocarbons

- Geothermal energy

- Engineering geology

- Quaternary and glacial landscape structures.

Equally, the Faroe Island are a key locality to reconstruct the geological history of the opening of the North Atlantic and the processes related to continental breakup and the formation of new oceans.

Fieldwork in the Faroe Islands will involve visits to geological outcrops that exemplify the geological evolution of the Northeast Atlantic. There will also be lectures and presentations on the Faroe Island, including lectures by invited guest teachers.
