|School||School of Geosciences
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||These changes are proposed for EASC10111 "GP International Field Course" for the year 2020-21 ONLY/
Desk-based replacement for course in field geophysics (80%) Presentations during week 10 of semester 2 (20%)
This course includes two components, both of which are essential components of the geophysics senior honours year, but which are otherwise independent of each other.
The first component is, in a normal year, a geophysics field course. In September 2020 we will not be able to travel to the planned location in France. Instead, students will be presented with data from a previous field course and will attempt to assemble it into a report on the field area.
The second component is a presentation given during week 10 of Semester 2. The subject of the presentation is the project work which the student carried out over the course of the year.
