1. Introduction to
a. problem of finding a suitable location for seismic station, installation and functioning of the station and instruments needed for quality operation,
b. problem of finding a suitable location for geomagnetic observatory, installation and functioning of the observatory and instruments needed for quality operation,
c. organisation of field work.
2. Association of previous curriculum in seismology and geomagnetism with practical fieldwork.
3. Adoption of knowledge and skills for successful application in future professional and/or scientific work.
4. Development of ability to choose and use relevant measuring methods and instruments for appropriate experiments or observations.
Seismology -seismic station
Getting to know the instruments at the seismic station location and local conditions. Identification of positive and negative impacts on the work of seismic stations. Getting acquainted with the characteristics of seismological observations and measurements.
Geomagnetism -geomagnetic observatory
Getting to know the instruments at the geomagnetic observatory location and local conditions. Identification of positive and negative impacts on the work of geomagnetic observatories. Getting acquainted with the characteristics of geomagnetic observations and measurements.
After completion the course Field Work 3 the student should be able to:
- understand theoretical knowledge adopted in previous courses in seismology and geomagnetism and apply it in practice,
- describe and understand fundamentals of the instruments and measuring techniques at seismic stations and geomagnetic observatories,
- be capable to prepare and organise field work as well as successfully implement it,
- be independent in implementation of fieldwork,
- to recognise the importance of teamwork.
METHODS OF MONITORING AND VERIFICATION:
TERMS FOR RECEIVING THE SIGNATURE:
Students are obliged to attend all forms of teaching and to write fieldwork diary that
they have to present to the teacher at the end of the course.
After the duties are duly completed, the students receive a signature without rating.
