Spain Field Visit

This unique module bridges the gap between geodynamics and crustal evolution (Geology) and Earth surface processes (Physical Geography) and provides a crucial perspective on how to combine these disciplines in the field. The field course itself will take place in southeast Spain but the concepts and skills learned can be applied to other situations and field sites. The module is delivered in the form of weekly seminars to provide sufficient background information prior to the field course. In Spain, several days will be spent introducing students to the local and regional geology and geomorphology, which will then be followed by assessed, student-led research projects and mini field excursions.
