The main goal of this curricular unit is to study subjects related to petrogenesis and orogenesis. It is also an important goal the study of great geological units of Portugal.

1. Magmatic and Metamorphic environments
2. Petrography of magmatic and metamorphic rocks
3. Deformation and Orogenesis
4. Plate Tectonics

Capacity to identify the internal geodynamic processes; capacity to identify and characterize the great Portuguese geological units.

1. Magmatic and Metamorphic environments (dynamics and products);
2. Deformation and orogenesis;
3. Global tectonic.

Materials available on Moodle UAb platform.
