GENERAL GEOLOGY COURSE

3 weeks, 6 ECTS, run by the Faculty of Geology, University of Warsaw

The course involves training in "geological thinking" and is based geological observations across several sites. As a result of the course, students will increase their knowledge by using the dynamic geology available to them in the immediate vicinity, with classes being conducted across both winter and summer semesters. Students will also have the opportunity to look at preparing and recording basic geological observations in the form of field sketches (taken from various outcrops) alongside various other geological profiles and sections. They will also learn about the how to analyse geological structures, especially those seen in the area, from a combination of map data and outcrop observations. The course teaches (and gives you the ability to practice) standard geological measurements. Much emphasis is given to the observations and recognition of the relationship between the landforms seen and how they relate to the geological structure. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about basic tectonic structures. Similarly another key aspect of the class involves basic sedimentary structures and how they represent their environment of deposition. Another focus area is the ability to synthesize partial observations and geological data. During the course students learn about the geological structure and evolution of the western part of the Świętokrzyskie Mountains. Finally, the students are given to opportunity to acquire vital experience when it comes to examining macroscopic rocks and fossils.
