SCIENZE BIOLOGICHE, GEOLOGICHE E AMBIENTALIGeological SciencesAcademic Year 2022/2023



Expected Learning Outcomes

Acquisition of the ability to recognize the trend of a geological limit and its orientation in 3D space through the use of stratimetry principles, recognition of tectonic structures and their stress fields (principles of structural geology), recognition of the structure in space and time of stratigraphic units and their reciprocal geometric relationships (unconformities). Acquisition of specific knowledge about the paleogeographic/structural domains of Sicily and their kinematic evolution over time.
