    Description The European Alps are recognised as one of the best studied orogens in the world. Their excellent exposure and vicinity to the University of Bern provide an outstanding opportunity to examine the field evidence for modern concepts of orogenesis. The field trip provides an overview of the geodynamic evolution of the Alpine orogen, discussion of surface erosion and related depositional products (Molasse Basin); thrust tectonics and nappe stacking, exhumation and metamorphism, topographic overprint by glaciers and related morphologic and stratigraphic/sedimentologic features, landslides and rock avalanche deposits.
    Training objectives Application of geological methods to field work, and integration of the theroretical approaches developped during the courses. Training of Geology of Switzerland based on group- and individual study.
    Comments 5 days-excursion from the Jura to the Alps.
