Knowledge and understanding: the course will give the basic principles of in geochemistry. Applying knowledge and understanding: the course will give the tools necessary to apply the basic principles of geochemistry to applied and basic science.
Expected learning outcomes
Making judgements: the course aims to increase the ability of independent judgements in the field of geochemistry. Communication skills: the course aims to increase the ability of the students to transfer the basic principles of geochemistry to specialist and not specialist persons. Learning skills: the course will give the basic geochemical knowledge necessary to start higher level studies.
