Aims and Objectives
Knowledge and Understanding
Having successfully completed this module, you will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:
- Ophiolite formation
- Vein formation and mineralisation.
- Granite Emplacement
Transferable and Generic Skills
Having successfully completed this module you will be able to:
- Actions required to complete a successful risk assessment
- A fundamental understanding of the he principles and practice of successful teamwork through an active learning environment
- Computational and report writing skills through delivery of consultancy reports
The syllabus is focussed on a series of fieldwork exercises based on the geology of Cornwall including:
1. Evolution of the Lizard Ophiolite Complex based on evidence collected between Coverack Cove and Porthoustock, Cornwall.
2. On granite formation and emplacement. Evidence from SW Cornwall.
3. Veins, Mineralization and Deformation. Observations from Cornwall.
Learning and Teaching
Teaching and learning methods
The cohort is divided into groups. Following a briefing session and team development session at Southampton, the individual groups collect data during each day for field localities in Cornwall. Each evening the work is collated and developed into a report.
|Total study time||124|
Assessment is by three reports and a Powerpoint presentation at 25% for each component.
Report 1. Evolution of the Lizard Ophiolite Complex based on evidence collected between Coverack Cove and Porthoustock, Cornwall.
Report 2. On granite formation and emplacement. Evidence from SW Cornwall.
Report 3 Mineralization and Deformation. Observations from Cornwall.
Powerpoint 1. One of the above titles.
Team mark is then modified to an individual mark following Peer to Peer assessment
This is how we’ll formally assess what you have learned in this module.
