Intensive course - Lithosphere and Asthenosphere: Composition and Evolution
11 - 15 November 2019 the Norwegian research school DEEP offers an intensive course on the composition and evolution of the lithosphere and asthenosphere in Oslo with Valerie Maupin and Clint Conrad.
Clint Conrad and Valerie Maupin explaining and talking to students during the 2017 Lithosphere and Asthenosphere: Composition and Evolution course.
This course deals with the composition and evolution of the crust, lithospheric mantle and asthenosphere. Seismic imaging techniques and interpretation of tomographic images in terms of composition and physical properties will be coupled with recent results in petrology, geochemistry and geodynamical modelling to review recent advances in our understanding of the evolution and present state of the continental as well as oceanic lithosphere.
The course lectures and discussions will be based upon five selected articles. The articles will be announced in good time before the course starts. Each student will be asked to choose a selected aspect/subtopic of the course material and prepare a short presentation prior to the course in order to set up the discussions.
Course participants will receive more information regarding the program and obligatory activities after the application deadline.

Preparations and exam
You will receive literature to prepare in advance and get approximately one month to finish a home exam after the lecture week. Each student will be asked to choose a selected aspect/subtopic of the course material and prepare a short presentation.
