Description:
Glacial landforms on south Velebit Mt. Glacial sediments and sedimentary bodies in Velika Paklenica Canyon: moraines, glaciofluvial sediments, glaciotectonics. Glacial sediments on Veliko Rujno: medial moraine, erratic blocks. Glacial sediments in Novigrad Sea: moraines, proglacial lacustrine sediments, ice-marginal sediments, paleosols, glaciofluvial sediments, permafrost.
Glacial sediments in Ravni Kotari: moraines, proglacial lacustrine sediments, glaciotectonics. Field research: mapping, logging, sampling of secondary calcite, sampling fossils

Learning outcomes:
Achievement of specific knowledge on the subject and competences for recognition and study of glacigenic, proglacial and periglacial sediments, competences for the study of sediments in field, lithofacial mapping, and competences for the interpretation of geological features and structures. Recognition of specific deformations induced by ice, recognition of glacial and periglacial landforms. Interpretation of geological history and climate changes.
