Course objectives
Students get view about origin and building of the Earth and take up with basic endogenous and exogenous geological processes at the end of the course BIp004 Inorganic Nature 2. Students will obtain main informations about geological structure of Czech Republic and its geological evolution from Proterozoic to recent.
Learning outcomes
The student will be able to explain the Earth origin and building and describe the basic endogenous and exogenous geological processes applied to its formation. She can interpret the essential features of the geological structure of the Czech Republic and describe the main stages of its geological development from Proterozoic to present. The acquired knowledge can be applied in a simplified form in the teaching process at elementary school.
  • 1. Introduction to geology study, origin of the Earth, Earth building, geophysical model of Earth internal structure, Earth core, mantel and crust: composition, physical a chemistry properties, characteristic of lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere – importance to life and human. 2. Principles of plate tectonics, plate boundary, subduction and collision zone processes, plate boundary and seismicity, hot spots. 3. Endogenous geological processes: igneous and metamorphic processes, diastrophism. 4. Exogenous processes: groundwater and surface water, fluvial processes, glaciers and glacial processes, aeolian environment, humans activity on the geological evolution of the Earth. 7. Regional geology of Czech Republic – Bohemian Massif, Western Carpathians. 8. Historical geology – geological periods and his paleogeographic, climatological, geological and biological characteristics, life evolution on the Earth.
