This module centres on two field courses: one normally held during the September preceding 2nd year studies, and emphasising field techniques, the other held during the Easter vacation, and aimed at broadening the student's experience of field-based issues relevant to the Environmental Earth Science course. The module includes tutorial classes, and other meetings ancillary to the fieldwork.
On completion of this module, students should have acquired greater expertise in the basic field and communication skills introduced in the first-year course, together with additional skills such as field, graphical, sampling, and geophysical methods, the production of geological maps, and a greater breadth of field experience.
