Are you fascinated by Geosciences and willing to take the challenge of predicting the nature and behavior of the Earth subsurface? This is your course!

In a voyage through the Earth, Geoscience: the Earth and its Resources will explore the Earth interior and the processes forming mountains and sedimentary basins. You will understand how the sediments are formed, transported, deposited and deformed.

You will develop knowledge on the behavior of petroleum and water resources.

The course has an innovative approach focusing on key fundamental processes, exploring their nature and quantitative interactions. It will be shown how this acquired knowledge is used to predict the nature and behavior of the Earth subsurface.

This is your ideal first step as a future Geoscientists or professional to upgrade your knowledge in the domain of Earth Sciences.

The course could be described as an introduction to geology, with two final modules about water and hydrocarbons, anyone with basic knowledge in science can follow it. The content is very well developed and structured, they present the more basic and important concepts in the first modules building up towards the more practical aspects. The videos and slides depict very clearly what they are explaining, the forums are helpful, and they upload feedback-videos at the end of some modules where Proffesor Bertotti clarifies the more difficult concepts. Overall a very good course. I recommend it to refresh your geology if you studied it in the past, or to anyone interested in it.

The content is interesting. I like how the instructor's clarity about the course. I have longed to meet this opportunity. To me I feel this course is introduced because of me. I rate it high. After this, I have a plan to prepare to enroll for the verified certificate. Earth and it's Resources is my dream course but time could not have me but I thank the organizers of edx for their efforts to come up with a programme I can study at my less busy hours. I applaud you and I'm requesting for introducing Geophysics also. Thanks

As Petroleum geology is included why not something about Mining Geology? Mineral resource extraction is also vital for modern society which could be included. TU delft has good reputation about mineral resource engineering which is not focused in this course. Thanks for the nice course!

I like this course very much. since Nepal is very rich in resourses like more than 90% water is drinkable without curing,and there are many hills and himalayas,so proper tunneling is required.People are still unable to drill water for drinking, so this course will help me solve some of the problems of drinking water in dry regions and me being a geology student, its my responsibility to help & work in a proper way. Thank you so much for providing this course because this course gonna solve alot of my problems.
