Information about course content, reading list and additional information

Course Content The module focuses on sedimentary archives of environmental processes. Sample material which is described and taken by the students in the field is analyzed in the laboratory. The results of the field and laboratory analyses are assembled in a scientific text simulating a peer-reviewed scientific publication. This course fosters the ability of the students to analyze environmental data from the sedimentary record on their own. In the end they should present and discuss this data in a boarder scientific context going beyond a standard lab report. This should enable/prepare them to write scientific monographs (theses) or peer-reviewed journal articles. Key skills: 1.         Designing experiments/field work 2.         Managing data 3.         Publishing data (transforming data into graphs and texts)
