Coastal Geology

Study of the geology, geomorphology, sedimentology, mineral resources, as well as the paleogeographic and stratigraphic evolution, of coastal regions.

Professors : Eduardo Guimarães Barboza, Jair Weschenfelder, Luiz José Tomazelli and Sérgio Rebello Dillenburg.

  

Marine Geology

Study of the geology, bottom morphology, morpho-structural evolution, of continental margins, as well as the sedimentary distribution, mineral resources, paleogeographic evolution and coastal dynamics, of marine regions.

Professors : Carlos A. F. Schettini, Elírio E. Toldo Jr., Iran Carlos Stalliviere Corrêa, Jair Weschenfelder, Jefferson Cardia Simões, Leandro Farina .
