651-0254-00LSeminar Geochemistry and Petrology0 KP2SM. W. Schmidt, O. Bachmann, C. A. Heinrich, M. Schönbächler, D. Vance
KurzbeschreibungSeminar series with external and occasional internal speakers addressing current research topics. Changing programs announced via D-ERDW homepage (Veranstaltungskalender)
LernzielPresentations on isotope geochemistry, cosmochemistry, fluid processes, economic geology, petrology, mineralogy and experimental studies. Mostly international speakers provide students, department members and interested guests with insight into current research topics in these fields.
InhaltWöchentliches Seminar mit Fachvorträgen eingeladener oder interner Wissenschafter, vornehmlich zu Themen der Geochemie, Isotogengeologie, Hydrothermalgeochemie, Lagerstättenbildung, Petrologie, Mineralogie und experimentelle Studien.
651-3400-AALFundamentals of Geochemistry
Belegung ist NUR erlaubt für MSc Studierende, die diese Lerneinheit als Auflagenfach verfügt haben.

Alle anderen Studierenden (u.a. auch Mobilitätsstudierende, Doktorierende) können diese Lerneinheit NICHT belegen.

KurzbeschreibungSelf-study course, the contents of which will be defined by consultation with the study advisor.
LernzielClose knowledge gaps in geochemistry to fulfill the respective requirements for the earth science MSc programme.
651-4032-00LVolcanology3 KP2VO. Bachmann
KurzbeschreibungThis course will discuss the processes occurring from magma generation to eruption, covering topics such as magma formation, storage, movement, evolution, ascent in conduit and eruption dynamics. The course will also discuss deposits, and will prepare students to take the volcanology field course. Finally, an introduction on volcanic hazards and volcano monitoring will be presented.
LernzielAfter completion of this course the students should have a good understanding of the dynamics of volcanic systems, from source to surface. The students should understand the main steps involved in generating volcanic activity on Earth, to interpret the depositional processes operating during volcanic eruptions. They should also be able to discuss potential hazards related to a given volcanic phenomena.
InhaltDuring the course, the following topics are covered:
- Basics of physical volcanology
- Physical properties of magmas
- The role of volatiles in volcanic eruptions
- Fragmentation processes
- Explosive volcanism – dynamics and deposits
- Effusive volcanism – lava flows
- Monitoring techniques used at active volcanoes
- Volcanic hazards

Some of these modules are accompanied by exercises
SkriptPresentation slides will be handed out

Number of participants limited to 20.

Prerequisite: This course can only be taken after successful completion of 651-4032-00L Volcanology.
2 KP6PO. Bachmann
KurzbeschreibungThe course complements the lecture class on physical volcanology, by providing a close look at the field characteristics of volcanic deposits. It is run in a volcanic province, typically in Europe (e.g., Iceland, Greece, Italy, Spain, Germany, France). The course focuses on the field description of many types of volcanic deposits and their edifices.
LernzielAfter completion of this course, the students should be able to differentiate the different types of volcanic rocks in the field, and interpret the eruptive dynamics that led to their deposition. They should also be able to provide some guidance on the type of hazards that a given volcanic edifice or province is most likely to produce.
InhaltThe course involves a weeklong stay in a volcanic province, in most cases situated in Europe. A first part of the course will focus on a guided tour to look at volcanic deposits and learn the characteristics of the area. In a second stage, the students will have to complete some field exercises.
SkriptA field guide and scientific papers pertaining to the area of study will be distributed
