Dating and correlating the stratigraphic successions


In charge for pedagogy: Emanuela MATTIOLI
Lectures: 15 hours; practical works 15 hours


The main goal of this unit is to provide the students with the know-how to use the main methods in stratigraphy in order to date and correlate the major events which occurred during the Earth History. These methods will be discussed and their application domains or limits will be elucidated. Particular attention will be provided to the construction of integrated stratigraphic scales as well as to the establishment of high resolution scales.
