Learning outcomes:

Achievement of specific knowledge on the subject and competences which are necessary for:
1) Field study of glacigenic, proglacial and periglacial sediments,
2) Thematical mapping,
3) Interpretation of geological relationships in the field,
4) Recognition of ice-induced deformations,
5) Recognition of ice-sculptured topography.
