New master courses, spring 2021
Dear master student in Geosciences!
Starting in spring 2021, we are launching a couple of new Master courses in Geosciences. The new students starting this fall will within 1 December submit their Master contracts, and we would like to present the new upcoming courses for you:
- GEO4012 - Scientific Writing and Presentation (5 ECTS)
This course is focused on developing the participant's experience in reviewing scientific literature, writing their own scientific texts, and oral presentations of review finding and their own data.
The course overlap 5 ECTS towards another new course:
- GEO4014 - Basin Analysis - Scientific Writing, Presentation and Field Course (10 ECTS)
The course is focused on establishing a deep understanding of a geological area through literature review, scientific writing and oral presentations, culminating in a field course that targets how sedimentary basins are formed and filled and integrates structural and sedimentological principles.
Students admitted to one of the following programme options will be given priority in admission to GEO4014:
- Structural Geology and Tectonics
- Petroleum Geosciences
- Sedimentology, Paleontology and Stratigraphy
whereas other programme students in Geosciences and CS: Geoscience will be admitted if there are vacant capacity.
The scientific writing and presentation part is common for GEO4012 and GEO4014 and will be taught together.
Another new course, spring 2021 is:
- GEO4904 - Atmospheric Chemistry (5 ECTS)
The course deals with the basic processes that govern the composition of chemically active species in the atmosphere (gases and aerosols). This is crucial in understanding trends in short-lived greenhouse gases, aerosols, ozone depletion in the stratosphere, acidification and regional air pollution. The course gives an introduction to modelling of atmospheric chemistry in e.g. Earth System Models.
Both GEO4012 and GEO4014 will be eligible for admitted Master students in Geosciences and CS: Geoscience only, whereas GEO4904 will also be eligible for non-programme students and others.
The new course descriptions will be published in mid-November, and you will find more relevant information about the new courses then. Registration for spring 2021 courses opens on 1 December 2020.
