05-MAG-AP1 Crustal Dynamics and Reservoir Formation
Beauftragte/r Cornelia Spiegel-Behnke
This module deals with the structural, tectonic and thermal evolution of the earth´s upper crust and its relationship to basin formation and hydrocarbon generation. Different methods for quantifying exhumation, weathering and erosion of rocks and thermal maturity of sediments will be introduced.
Learning Outcomes, Targeted Competencies:
Have a better understanding of interrelations between large-scale tectonic processes and reservoir formation Gain knowledge on state-of-the-art methods for quantifying denudation and subsidence of the upper crust Identify crustal deformation patterns by optical microscopy Obtain expertise in thermal history modelling
