Course objectives
Hlavním obsahem předmětu je praktické provedení a procvičení nejdůležitějších metod zpracování tektonických dat. Předmět je určen posluchačům bakalářského se zájmem o poznání základních metod tektonického výzkumu a posluchačům magisterského studia, kteří hodlají složit státní zkoušku z tektoniky. Posluchačům, kteří se chtějí odborně (bakalářská, diplomová práce) věnovat tektonice, je absolvování předmětu doporučeno již ve třetím ročníku.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able to:
- understand the concepts of advanced structural geology
- use methods for processing of tectonic data
- process and interpret tectonic data
- Understand 3D construction in geology
