The Course provides with lessons the essential knowledge for a correct interpretation of the geological processes of a region, in particular those that control the landscape evolution and those that can be seen as Geological Hazard situations.
After attending the first parts of the course the student will be able to apply the knowledge on the Apennines, with field exercises, using a modern geological map.
In field exercises the student can understand the most important geological features of the Apennines and will be able to analyze the outcropping rock units.
The student may also recognizes those particular geological sites that allow geologist to understand the processes of the past and which must therefore be safeguarded and valued as Geological Heritage.
Finally, the student will be able to understand the relationships between Geological Landscape, active geological processes and Land Use, highlighting any situations of Geological Hazard that may interfere with the development of human settlements and related infrastructure.
