Learning objectives
Il corso si propone di stimolare gli studenti a utilizzare tutti gli strumenti di analisi meso- e microstrutturale fino a qui acquisiti (es. sezioni geologiche verticali, statistica sferica, analisi mesostrutturale, analisi microstrutturale, relazioni blastesi-deformazione, cinematica delle faglie, meccanismi di sviluppo di sistemi a pieghe e sovrascorrimenti, etc.), applicandoli a situazioni geologiche complesse. L'analisi sarà applicata alla risoluzione di problemi più prettamente geologici che a problematiche geologico-applicative.

Course syllabus
STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS II
During this course the students will use the techniques of modern structural analysis from mega- to mesoscale. They will be introduced to the 1) structural analysis of spherical data, 2) geological section drawing and interpretation, 3) reconstruction of structural geological sections from field data, 4) correlation of fabric elements (ductile and brittle), 5) kinematic and paleo stress reconstruction of faults from field data.
The course will be mostly held indoors; data are provided by structural-geological maps from different degree of complexity terrains and original field data of ductile and brittle structures. Microstructural analysis will also be used to get a complete overview of the posed problems and possible solutions.
