Geotectonic history of Croatia and the main structural units. Karst Dinarides - early history and beginnings of development of carbonate platform (Carboniferous-Permian). Karst Dinarides - stressful events at the end of the Paleozoic era, the great extinction at Permian / Triassic boundary and slow recovery during the Triassic. Karst Dinarides during the Jurassic and Cretaceous - a platform type of deposition. Karst Dinarides in Cenozoic era - from tropics to the glacial period. Internal Dinarides - the edge of the platform and its specificity. Northern Croatia during the Palaeozoic era. Triassic events in Northern Croatia. Geological events during the Jurassic and Cretaceous in Northern Croatia. Cenozoic in Northern Croatia. Formation of Paratethys and its evolution. Croatia during the Pleistocene and Holocene. History of geological explorations in Croatia.

Learning outcomes:

Knowledge of the complex geologic, paleogeographic and geotectonic history of Croatian regions.
Synthesis of sedimentological and paleontological features of deposits from different geological periods.
Knowledge of the development of earth sciences and improvement of geological knowledge in Croatia.
Knowledge about the lithostratigraphic units with their potential concerning the investigation and exploration of raw materials and energetic resources.
