This free online course on fundamentals of glacial and seismic geomorphology will begin by introducing you to the concepts of glacial geomorphology. You will learn about the geomorphology of glacier surfaces as well as how valley glaciers are formed. You will also learn about the role of ice caps along with ice sheets in the formation of valley glaciers.
This course will also introduce you to the meaning of geomorphic changes by glaciers as well as the concept of the glacial deposition system. Then, this course will teach you about the meaning of exploration geomorphology and its particular application to the petroleum industry. Furthermore, this course will give you an understanding of porosity as well as permeability trends as part of the characteristics of exploration geomorphology.
Finally, this course will introduce you to the concept of seismic geomorphology. This course will equip you with the requisite knowledge about the utility of seismic geomorphology as well as the use of ground-penetrating radar geomorphology. This course will also enhance your knowledge about the workflow process in seismic geomorphology.
