SLE202 - Landscape Evolution
|Year||2016 unit information|
|Enrolment modes:||Trimester 1: Burwood (Melbourne)|
Sanja van Huet
1 x 2 hour class per week, 4 x 3 hour practicals per trimester and a full day field trip to the Mornington Peninsula
The unit will include an introduction to soil classification and identification, studies on earth surface processes that influence landform development, and on general geomorphic systems. It will also involve a detailed study of rock types and a basic study of geological structures. Further it will examine techniques used in the assessment of the landscape palaeo-environmental history, and the contribution that this information / data has to climate change science. This unit will also involve detailed studies of geo-scientific maps (i.e. geological, regolith and soil maps), and of geophysical remote sensed imagery applicable to geo-environmental problems.
Two practical reports (20% each) 40%, one field trip report 20%, examination 40%
