Treść modułu zajęć (program wykładów i pozostałych zajęć)
Wykład:

Earth’s origin and structure. Principles of plate tectonics; crustal tectonic provinces, their features and evolution. Wilson Cycle. Global tectonics: growth of continents; cratonisation and orogenesis; continental assembly and dispersal; global stages of cratonisation through geological time.
Evolution of the early crust in the Archaean – cratonic nuclei; greenstone belts: rock successions, intrusive relations and preservation of stratigraphy; models of evolution and cratonisation. The Barberton Greenstone Belt. Granitoid-greenstone terrains of the Kaapvaal, Zimbabwe and Pilbara Cratons, and the Canadian Shield. The Isua Greenstone Belt and the earliest signs of life. Polymetamorphic terrains, orogenesis and craton deformations: the Limpopo Belt. The Witwatersrand Supergroup – foreland sedimentation and gold deposits.
Proterozoic crustal evolution. Layered igneous complexes: Bushveld Complex; Great Dyke. Assembly and breakup of the Rodinia Supercontinent. Grenvillean/Kibaran orogeny. Orogenic belts: Magondi, Namaqua-Natal belts, Pan-African-Brasiliano belts system, and their correlatives – tectonic evolution and basin reconstructions; igneous processes. Ore-bearing, syn-rift sedimentary complexes in the Katangan-Damara belt. Controversy of the global “Snowball Earth” glaciations.
Phanerozoic – the assembly of Gondwana; the Karoo Supergroup (and pan-Gondwana age equivalent units): plate tectonic controls on basin tectonics, climate and sedimentation in foreland and intracratonic basins; flood basalts. Assembly of the Pangaea Supercontinent (Gondwana+Euramerica+Siberia) and its break-up. Caledonides. Hercynian/Variscan-Alleghenian orogeny. The Laramide Orogeny. The Alpine orogens – geology of the component orogenic belts. Outline of geology of the Himalaya. The Andes: diachronous subduction; subduction of ridges, volcanic arcs, and flat slabs. Ongoing rifting of the African Craton.
Selected problems, for example: kimberlites – occurrences, economic aspects and plate tectonic constraints; Creatceous-to-Recent sedimentation in a continental-scale intracratonic basin: the Kalahari Beds.

Zajęcia seminaryjne:

Selected papers and literature study leading to presentations on important elements of global geology. Especially devoted to the regions illustrating crucial stages and turning points of the Wilson Cycle and its variants.
Evolution of the cratonic nuclei and greenstone belts with examples. The Isua Greenstone Belt and the earliest signs of life. Craton deformations and comparisons between the Archaean and younger orogenicd belts.
Proterozoic crustal evolution and selected igneous units, e.g. the Great Dyke. Assembly and breakup of supercontinents and role of orogens and their forelands in inter-continental correlations. Pan-African-Brasiliano belts system, and their correlatives – tectonic evolution and basin reconstructions; igneous processes. Interactions of continetal and oceanic crustal units, e.g S America and Pacific plates. Global tectonics and economic deposits.
