  Advanced petrology

Équipe enseignante de l'UE : 
Nombre d'ECTS : 
3
Programme : 

 

The aim is to learn how deciphering the dynamics of the Earth by studying rocks.
Petrology: Quantitative approaches (15 hours of lectures and tutorials)
• Observation and analysis techniques: Instruments (Microprobe, SEM, Raman)
• Stoichiometry, chemography: application of linear algebra
• P-T evolution of rocks, role of fluids: application of thermodynamics
Quantification of Pressure and Temperature (15 hours of lab practical)
• Individual research mini-projects on natural samples (thin sections)
• Characterization of mineralogy and mineral chemistry (Probe, SEM)
• Calculation of structural formulas
• Introduction to Pseudosection modeling and construction of a pressure-temperature path

 

Compétences visées : 

This formation (unique in France) aims at training future PhD students in hard-rock geology and petrology: it provides all the tools and the analytical procedure to reconstruct the history of a rock sample. It also provides the opportunity to all the participants to become familiar with standard analytical techniques such as electron probe and scanning electron microscopy.

 

Pré-requis : 

Knowledge in optical microscopy (mandatory), mineral chemistry, geosciences.
