Tracking of palaeoceanographical changes with the help of palaeontological, sedimentological and geochemical methods
This course presents and explore the application of palaeontological, sedimentological and geochemical methods in palaeoenvironmental reconstruction of marine systems. The palaeoecological significance of different marine fossils, the microfacies studies and geochemical analyses of fossil skeletons in palaeoenvironmental reconstruction will be featured with the help of case studies.
