The course Geomorphology and Aerial photo interpretation has among its specific objectives those of providing a solid basic geomorphological preparation and the knowledge and operational tools useful for entering the world of work (also with reference to the registration in the professional register of "Geologist junior ") and for access to master's degrees, especially that in Earth Sciences Applied to Environmental Sustainability.
These objectives are achieved through the acquisition of:
- basic knowledge of the dynamics of the earth's crust and of the litho-structural conditions of the substrate; climatic variations in time and space;
- basic knowledge to recognize the effects of one or more Earth relief modeling cycles and the relative connections with the morphologic processes of the past;
- ability to interpret and describe the landforms within the geomorphological evolution of the landscape even with the study of aerial photos; understand the functional and spatial relationships between the landforms in a given area;
-capacity of analysis of morphological consequences induced on the environment by hydrogeological hazards according to their intensity.
