JEO 626E - Ore Depo.Related to Pla.Tecto.

Course Objectives

The purpose of this course is - by specializing general knowledge already acquired - to teach students frequency of occurrence of ore deposits in which tectonic belts within the context of plate tectonics, and thus where to look, why and how they should be explored. Introduction of metallogenic belts of Turkey and presence and potential occurrence of ore deposits in such environments and teaching their interrelations with lithologies and tectonic settings.
