GL 4023
GEOLOGICAL MAPPING PROJECT
CREDIT POINTS 45

Course Co-ordinator: Prof R Butler

Pre-requisite(s): Only available to level 4 Honours Geology-Petroleum Geology and Geoscience students.

This is an independent project and has no specific lecture or practical syllabus. The course aims to make students integrate all their geological knowledge and skills gained on previous courses and challenges them to be more aware of their own academic and self management skills. The course is designed to encourage students to plan and execute a small research project and, whilst the initial choice of project is subject to staff scrutiny (for reasons of safety and geological suitability), the subsequent input and guidance from staff advisers is controlled by student request.

3 one-day field courses in the Aberdeen area after the May examination diet. 35 days of individual fieldwork in an area approved by supervisor.

1st Attempt: In-course assessment (100%).
