Name of subject: Petrology

Instructors: Dr Kristina Šarić, Bojan Kostić

Status: Compulsory

ECTS: 6

Prerequisites: -

Course Objectives: Introduction with major igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, their fabric and composition, economic importance, distribution and geodynamic settings; their regional distribution, especially in Serbia.

Learning Outcomes: Qualifying for direct practical work in a field - determination of rocks and petrographical analyses (texture, structure, fabric, composition) and preparation for higher levels of studies.

Content:

Theory teaching
Structure of the Earth (plate tectonics). Rock forming and ore minerals. Igneous processes and igneous rocks. Classification, terminology and nomenclature. Geotectonic settings. Sedimentary rocks - classification, terminology, nomenclature, environment of formation of sedimentary rocks. Metamorphic rocks - classification, terminology, nomenclature. Wall-rock alteration and metamorphic facies.

Practical teaching
Practicing follows the program of lectures. It includes macroscopical identification of composition, texture and structure of rocks and rock determination.
