Petrology and Geodynamics

Dr. Peter Appel

Focus of my lectures are microscopy of rocks, petrology and petrogenesis of magmatic and metamorphic rocks and microprobe analysis. In particula I have long term experience in the following fields of teaching:

  • Rock microscopy: metamorphic and magmatic
  • Polarization microscopy and mineral optics
  • petrology of magmatic and metamorphic rocks
  • rock determination: magmatic and metamorphic rocks
  • field trip about regional geology of Central Europe: Bornholm, Germany
  • Lectures on electron microprobe and XRF
  • Thermodynamic modeling with THERMOCALC (currently no lectures)
