Opis predmeta: Aim of the course is introducing on the Earth development from its forming, includiog the life evolution.
Main goals are:
- getting knowledge on the classification in stratigraphy and dating methods
- understanding of the plate tectonics theory and its function in the Earth crust change
- understanding of magmatism, deposition and metamorphism in the Earth crust forming
- getting knowledge on causes of the life evolution and mass extinctions
- introducing of the Earth developments and changes from its forming till the present time
- applying the knowledge in professional and scientific work.

Expected course level learning outcomes
In 15 chapters students will accept theoretical knowledge on rocks dating methods and events in the geological history of the Earth, and solve its development from the Earth formation before 4.6 billion years till the present time, including the biological evolution and main changes in life.
Students will be able to:
- differentiate and describe using of relative and absolute dating
- define the relative age of rocks
- describe the theory on the Earth forming, the Earth differentiation and its evolution through time
- evaluate the roll of plate tectonics, magmatism, metamorphism, sedimentation, climate changes and erosion in the dynamic lithosphere development
- explain the life evolution in the sense of the biological evolution, and causes of mass extinctions during the Earth's history
- choose the method of rock dating, and define lithostratigraphic formations of some of rocks in Croatia on his own
- recognize main lithostratigraphic formations on the field in Croatia
