Knowledge of accidents in the lithosphere leading to the establishment of tectonic structural and regional styles. Application of geological dynamics in Lebanon.
Introduction - Plate Tectonics - oceanic subduction accretion and collision. Elementary accidents : faults, folds, overlap, thrusts. Study of these accidents at geometric and dynamic levels. Structural styles: base, coverage (covering, coating, ...) Regional styles; examples: Pyrenees, Switzerland-franco-italian Alps, the Andes-L; Europe; synthesis through crises: Precambrian Caledonian, Hercynian-Alpine -orogenicTheories-Geodynamics of Lebanon.
LAB and TS:
1. Study of Geological Mapping: Topography and geological map reading. Horizontal structure - Sub-horizontal structure – Monocline structure, Anticline structure- Syncline structure - Structure Pleated S) - Structure gaillée.
2. Films Tecto-orogenesis.
3. Field trip
