Desired Project Deliverables
1) Precise mapping of the geomorphological features that characterize the platforms of the southern Red Sea. Mapping will be carried out using GIS software. The student will provide a QGIS project at the end of the internship.
2) Description and analysis of sediment cores. This will include a detailed sedimentological description (lithology, granulometry, sedimentary structures, etc.). The cores will then be CT scanned. Geochemical analysis and carbon-14 dating may also be carried out in collaboration with Ifremer.
3) Interpretation of acoustic profiles (seismic, sparker) using specialized software (Petrel, Move).
4) The final report will be in the form of an end-of-study report that will serve as a frame for a scientific publication.
