|Semester 2||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
||The analysis of sedimentary basin fills is typically undertaken to interpret Earth history and/or for the exploration of basin-hosted resources such as petroleum reservoirs, groundwater aquifers and mineral deposits. This unit takes a basin-scale to regional approach to analysing basin fills through application of established sedimentological-stratigraphic and geophysical techniques. Emphasis is placed on development of practical skills and on integration of geological and geophysical data.|
||Students are able to (1) demonstrate knowledge of geological and geophysical techniques relevant to the analysis of sedimentary basins; and (2) apply these techniques to solve problems related to understanding basin history and exploration for basin-hosted resources.|
||Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) practical exercises; (2) a small project report; and (3) a theory/practical test. Further information is available in the unit outline.|
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
