In addition, there will be a number of shorter arcticles.
August 24, 2015, the GEG-2130 course will start with two introduction lectures on the course content, and there will also be practical information on the field excursion. These lectures will take place 14:15-16:00 in the Geoscience building. More info on which lecture theatre later.
From 27. August early morning we will leave on a field escursion across southern Norway, to see and discuss the main types of geomorphology characterizing mainland Norway. We will return to Oslo late afternoon on 2. September. Two written reports will have to be submitted later (4. November), based on the excursion. More detailed information on the excursion and reports will follow later.
Det er obligatorisk fremmøte på første forelesning. Studenter som ikke møter, regnes for å ha trukket seg fra emnet med mindre de på forhånd har meldt forfall til Studieadministrasjonen på e-post firstname.lastname@example.org.
