Description du contenu de l'enseignement

Basic principles of stratigraphy, applications and limits. Diversity of methods for dating sedimentary rocks. Overview of the geological time scale. Basic principles of geological mapping (topographic and geological map, cross-sections, application exercises in tabular series, monoclinal series, folded series, faulted series, series with angular unconformity). Field work: identification of rocks in the field, stratigraphic column representation, geological mapping, reconstitution of the history of the studied area, links with the regional geological context.
