The 'Flügel' Course is an internationally renowned course in carbonate microfacies which has been running in Erlangen since 1974. It is organised by Prof. Axel Munnecke (Palaeontology department of the GeoZentrum Nordbayern, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany) and covers a wide range of topics, and is in the form of short presentations and accompanying microscope exercises. Skills will be developed on both thin sections and loose sediments. Great emphasis is placed on recent research developments in carbonate systems (e.g., cold water carbonates, deepwater reefs, bioerosion, cold seep carbonates). Prof. Munnecke will bring a unique collection of carbonate samples from around the world. It is also possible to bring your own samples to discuss with specialists.
The course will be held in English, will run for 5 days and offers 40-50% lectures and 50-60% exercises at the binocular/microscope. Following topics will be included:
It is envisaged to offer one evening where you can present and discuss your own thin sections with the specialists accompanied with an Apéro. Additionally, a joint dinner with all participants is planned.
