Aims

The aim of this module is to unravel the evolving basin architecture and the role of climate and/or sea-level change in controlling the sedimentary facies distribution.

Outline Of Syllabus

Students will spend 7 days investigating the geology of the Sorbas Basin, Spain, During this the student will extract information from rock, sediments and landforms in the field. The main geological emphasis will be on sedimentary basin development and associated sedimentary and tectonic phenomena. The field course will be based at the Hospederia del Desierto, Tabernas, Spain. The module links to the 1st year field course in Borrowdale and the 2nd year field course on Arran where similar skills on the process of extracting information from rocks were developed.
