Geodynamics and Plate Tectonic Processes (GEOV350) - Intensive course at the University of Bergen
Computer programming is a core skill for geophysicists. The overall goal of GEOV350 is to provide the students with a good understanding of computational geodynamics. The course will be taught the second or third week in May 2019.
A first goal of this course is to provide the students with an good understanding and programming kills in computational geodynamics. A second goal of this course is for the students to learn how to implement and use finite element techniques to solve problems in lithosphere dynamics.
In this course the students will learn a number of tools from numerical mathematics, including interpolation, integration, and solving simple partial differential equations using finite element techniques and write computer programs (in Matlab) that apply these methods on topics in geodynamics. These topics include thermal diffusion, elasticity and computational fluid dynamics applied to lithosphere deformation. The student will write a short report including a description of the model, the code implementation and with figures visualising their results.
5-days intensive course week
This one week intensive course in May 2019 is taught by Ritske Huismans at the University of Bergen and gives 5 ECTS credits upon completion.
