The course aims to provide students with the basic knowledge of geological applications in water resources , fluvial hydraulics and works, civil engineering works, slope instabilities, geological hazards and risks evaluations
Provide the basic skills for the profession of naturalist and the teaching of natural sciences in water resources, planning, construction and risk prevention.
Principles of geology, physical geography
Frequency of lessons is highly recommended, but not mandatory.
Type of Assessment
Oral test: the student will be required to answer some questions related to topics covered in the course. The students' critical sense and their capability to develop logical links to the various topics of the course will be evaluated.
Principles of applied and environmental geology. Use of thematic maps. Introduction to geological risk (vulnerability, hazard and risk). Idraulical risk: fluvial processes, river floods
Idrogeological risk: landslides (classification and monitoring)
Volcanic risk: volcanic activity and products.
Hearthqueke and seismic risk:
Georesources. Methods and techniques for environmental analysis. Prospecting with electrical method.
