Arctic Tectonics and Volcanism
The course addresses the diverse geological history of the Arctic region, including both onshore and offshore regions from Paleozoic to recent times. It focuses on the interplay of plate tectonics and volcanism and explores some of the outstanding region-by-region case studies/questions within the Arctic research community. Based in the gateway to the Arctic, Svalbard, the course will be complemented by field excursions examining the well exposed outcrops and specifically the igneous rocks emplaced over large parts of the Svalbard archipelago. Registration deadline is April 15.
