AC 3 - Marine and Coastal Geology
The area of concentration in Marine and Coastal Geology focuses on studies of the characterization and evolution of coastal zones, the understanding of the Earth's past changes and the quantification of geochemical exchanges between the different compartments of the planet.
LP1 - Environmental and Marine Geochemistry: The line of research in Environmental and Marine Geochemistry involves studies of chemical processes and reactions that govern the composition of rocks, soils, sediments, continental, coastal and marine bodies of water, and the cycles of matter and energy transporting chemical components.
LP2 –Evolution and Morphodynamics of Coastal Deposition Environments: The line of research in Evolution and Morphodynamics of Coastal Deposition Environments comprises studies involving the coastal transition zone and its estuaries, surf zones and adjacent beaches, addressing the morphodynamic changes of the beach and internal continental shelf at various time scales, in addition to studies that address mineral resources of the sea associated with marine sediments.
LP3 - Paleontology, Paleoclimatology and Paleoceanography: The line of research in Paleontology, Paleoclimatology and Paleoceanography addresses studies of stratigraphic analysis of quaternary deposits, taphonomic, paleoecological and paleoclimatic analyzes based on invertebrate and vertebrate fossils, paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic changes and the influence and chronology of marine transgressions and regressions on the continent.
