About

The Advanced Petrology course focuses on quantification of metamorphic processes, such as determination of pressure and temperature conditions in metamorphic rocks, construction of pressure-temperature paths and thermodynamic modelling of phase diagrams. It will enable the successful student to apply geothermobarometrical and thermodynamic approaches to geodynamic questions as well as to evaluate thermodynamic data critically.
