Few projects are available about sampling and petrographic and chemical analyses of magmatic and metamorphic rocks from Valsesia, Piemonte, which are part of a Permian section of continental crust. The work will include also the interpretation of the geological and petrological processes that occurred in this area and their relations with present-day geologic settings.
Available MSc and BSc projects
