Geomorphology 1 (NOG21O1)

The objective of this course is to introduce students to global tectonic, volcanic and seismic phenomena, processes and forms of relief.

Training students to form a database and implement them in one of the modern GIS-oriented programs (SURFER, GEOMEDIA) for the production of quantitative geomorphological maps, with the aim of morphometric evaluation of the relief.

Theoretical lectures
