Learning Objectives

This curriculum in Tectonics and risk assesment aimed at offering to students a complete formative path in tectonics and seismology of earthquakes. Students will be introduced to the quantitative analysis of geometries and kinematics of the local and regional tectonic structures controlling the genesis of earthquakes and to seismic hazard. The methodological multidisciplinary approach integrates of structural geology, geophysical, active tectonics, earthquake geology, seismology, seismotectonics, seismic hazard, volcanology and geodetic geological data. Several examples will be applied both in the professional and research fields. Finally, the course aims to develop a critical analysis of the scientific literature in the students.

Program

1. Introduction to the course; what is the tectonics. Territorial analysis related to geological risk assessment.

2. Structural geological analysis with geometric, kinematic and dynamic methodologies and their integration with seismological, tectonics, geophysical and geodetic data.

3. Global scale tectonics structures: plate tectonics forces drive in transform, extensional and subduction regime.

4. The aids of the geological maps in the analysis of tectonic structures at regional and local scale.

5. Analysis of the relationship between tectonics structures and land planning. Description of active tectonics structures.

6. Methods and exercises for the analysis of geological databases (eg geological maps, historical and instrumental seismicity, etc.).

Bridging Courses

It is strongly recommended that the student has passed the fundamental exams of the first year of the course.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The course aims to provide the student with an adequate method of analysis to understand, process and synthesize tectonic structures, and apply this knowledge in different geological environments and in different tectonic contexts. These skills are encouraged, stimulated and achieved through course attendance, laboratory exercises and specific activities on the ground. The verification of their achievement is obtained through the final examination tests.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

Laboratory activities and field trips.


Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Lectures, laboratory exercises and field trips.

Attendance

There are no attendance obligations for frontal lessons. However the student is advised to attend at least 2/3 of the laboratory activities, exercises on the ground, seminars and seminar-type training activities.

Course books

Notes from the teacher's lessons.

recommended books:

Davis G.H. - Structural Geology of Rocks and Regions, John Wiley & Sons, New York, 1984.

Scientific articles and websites on specific topics will be suggested and provided by the teacher during the course.

Assessment

Oral exam with a write report

Disability and Specific Learning Disorders (SLD)

Students who have registered their disability certification or SLD certification with the Inclusion and Right to Study Office can request to use conceptual maps (for keywords) during exams.

To this end, it is necessary to send the maps, two weeks before the exam date, to the course instructor, who will verify their compliance with the university guidelines and may request modifications.
