Mountain building, volcanism, ancient and modern sedimentological and erosional processes, geomorphology and glacial geology, genesis and exploration of hydrocarbon and ore deposits, environmental and paleoclimatic issues, and geological hazards form the core topics. A strong emphasis on field courses and on the use of our state of the art laboratories (geochemistry, geochronology, microscopy, electronic microscopy and image analyses, remote sensing, geophysics, among others) are key components of the education offered by the ELSTE.
