About this programme

The PhD course in Earth Sciences is embodied in the Turin PhD School.

In addition to the traditional tasks of description of the territory, study of minerals and rocks, the localization and correct use of natural resources (water and minerals) by means of the traditional disciplines of geology, mineralogy, crystallography, petrology, geochemistry, structural geology, volcanology, stratigraphy, paleontology, geophysics and didactics of the Earth Sciences, further skills are required to the experts of Earth Sciences, in an ever increasing contribution to the solution of problems, such as:

  • forecast of risks from natural events (earthquakes, floods, landslides, volcanic eruptions) and collaborative projects for the defense of the territory from such events;
  • defense of the environment from the risks arising from human activities (pollution, contamination, "greenhouse effect");
  • conservation and recovery of accelerated decay, often resulting from the increase in population and industrial development, of the natural and landscape heritage, archaeological monuments and museums;
  • determination of the behavior of geomaterials (minerals and rocks) at various temperatures and pressures as a contribution to the solution of both scientific and applicative problems;
  • study and modeling of the processes of formation and evolution of planets;
  • communication skills targeted to the literacy of citizens in general, to the training and retraining of teachers, to the preparation of professionals in the environmental field, as well as of some categories of public employees.
