Learning Objectives

The aim of the course is to give the students the basic concepts of landform analysis, mapping and interpretation, focusing on the natural processes that generate and modify landforms. The course also considers some of the practical aspects of recognizing and mapping morphostructures and landforms conditioned by geological structures, aimed at assessing their morphoevolutive trend and state of activity.

Program

Relief Shaping

Introduction. Geomorphological agents and processes. Endogenous dynamics and landforms. Exogenous geomorphological processes. Weathering: processes, landforms and products. Karst. Landforms conditioned by the geological structures: tectonic landforms and landforms produced by selective erosion. Processes and landforms on the hillslopes: mass movements and slope-wash. The fluvial system. Fluvial processes and landforms. Drainage networks. Channel planforms and subdivisions. Stream terraces and alluvial fans. Coastal geomorphology. Near-shore processes and landforms. Coastal types and their subdivisions. Coastal lakes and lagoons. River mouths.

Climate Geomorphology

Periglacial morphoclimatic system: characteristics, processes and landforms. Glacial morphoclimatic system: characteristics, processes and landforms. Hot-dry morphoclimatic system: characteristics, processes and landforms. Hot-humid periglacial morphoclimatic system: characteristics, processes and landforms. Temperate morphoclimatic system: characteristics, processes and landforms.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The student:
-must demonstrate a thorough knowledge of landforms in different geological and climatic contexts;
-must be able to understand the origin and evolution of landforms as a result of the different processes shaping the earth's relief;
-will acquire an autonomous capacity to relate the landforms of a given area to different -both active and relict- morphogenetic mechanisms, as well to outline the overall evolution trend of the same landforms.
