Learning Outcomes
During the course, the students are expected to: • Recognize igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks in the field. • Recognize altered rocks. • Recognize various structures related with igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic processes. • Understand the different metamorphic phases and how they connect with various metamorphic rocks. • Relate the geotectonic evolution of the Rhodope massif during Eocene to Miocene with the magmatism, metamorphism and sedimentation. • Link theoretical knowledge with practical applications during field work. A first attempt to construct simple geological sections. • Adapt to field conditions.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Adapt to new situations
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Be critical and self-critical
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
• Geology of the Circum Rodhope Zone, of the Serbian-Macedonian massif and the Rhodope massif • Mineralogy, petrography, age and origin of the plutonic rocks of Kavala, Philippi, Xanthi, Paranesti and the volcanic rocks of Sounio, Alexandroupolis, Ferres. • Metamorphic rocks of the Rhodope massif and Circum Rodhope Zone. • Sedimentary rocks of the Rhodope massif and Circum Rodhope Zone. • Discussion of individual petrological issues for each one of the magmatic rocks mentioned above (genesis, enclaves, xenoliths, alterations, contacts, country rocks, chemistry, Magma origin and evolution, geotectonic environment, etc.). • Discussion and summary of the origin of all magmatic rocks, as well as their relationship to metamorphism. • Discussion on the role of sedimentary rocks in understanding paleogeography and geotectonic evolution of the area. • Geodynamic setting of the Rhodope massif during the Eocene-Miocene period.
