Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Course is structured in individual thematic blocks and is designed to give the students fundamentals of quaternary with the emphasis placed on application frame with the utilization of GIS and environmental models. Students will be able to understand fundamental processes in the quaternary period, explain geological, climatological and other natural phenomenons which took place during this period as well as understand the field of periodic variations of the natural environment after completing this course. Student should be able to use GIS and environmental models in the field of natural environment reconstruction after the acquiring of knowledges and skills.

Summary

Course brings the elementary overview of the quaternary period, which is the rapidly evolving multidisciplinary subject amongst the Earth sciences. Subject studies and explains particular processes in the quaternary period, geologic, geomorphologic and climatic oscillations and their influences upon the natural environment. Closer focus is on the practical application of skills in GIS and environmental models. Subject endeavors to synthesize particular knowledges from the field of geology, paleoclimatology, geomorphology, biology and geoarcheology.
