The specific goals of this line are: a) the application of the sedimentological and stratigraphic concepts in the geometric recreation of sedimentary bodies; b) the sequential analysis of sedimentary successions; c) the recreation of geotectonic mechanisms of genesis and evolution of the basin; d) biostratigraphy and taxonomic and taphonomic analysis, e) paleoecology; f) the geophysical analysis and remote sensing of tectonic and sedimentary structures, g) the assessment of the uncertainty of economic resources in sedimentary basins; h) the study of the origin of terrestrial sources through petrographic analyses and isotopic ratios in heavy mineral detrital grains; i) the analysis of diagenetic processes.
