Learning verification modality

Geophysics: Technical report on the acquisition, processing and interpretation of the acquired data.
Stratigraphy: Fieldtrip guidebook focused on the caracterization of the lithostratigraphic units; stratigraphic log.
Structural Geology: structural data analysis
Extended program

Geophysics: Introduction to fundamental concepts, planning a geophysical campaign: identification of the target, equipment and configuration, selection of stations interval and parameters, identification of noise sources, field data analysis and interpretation, creation of technical geophysical report.
