Qualification objectives: The students have knowledge of geological and geomorphological processes. They can quantitatively analyze the morphology or properties of planetary surfaces using various methods and classify the results in the context of the evolutionary history of the respective body. They can interpret surface morphology and composition in comparison to other bodies and know which physical parameters or object-specific environmental conditions influence surface processes. They are able to represent the interpretations argumentatively and, if applicable, to develop them further in teams and to present the results appropriately.
Contents: Students learn important surface properties such as albedo, composition, roughness, mechanical properties, topography and get an overview of planetary surface forms, important morphological similarities and differences of different planetary surfaces. Basic knowledge of relevant and object-specific physical/geological processes on solid surfaces of planetary bodies will be provided, as well as knowledge of important circulation processes and factors affecting surface processes. Students gain an overview of chronology of surface processes. They learn to apply their knowledge to different problems and to work on them in groups.
