The course was held at the FAU University in Erlangen, Germany and covered all classic and modern aspects of carbonate sedimentology. Lectures on different topics of carbonates, given by professors from several German Universities were intensified by microscopy exercises. The main focus of the course is on recent developments in carbonate sedimentology with applications. The Geo Center in Erlangen owns a world renowned, one-of-a-kind collection of carbonate thin-sections and sediment samples. This famous international course is well known worldwide. Until today, 1500 colleagues from academia and industry already attended the course. This year five AGEO BSc and MSc students Husam Al-Rawahi, Ali Al-Hajri, Marwa Al-Riyami, Shamsa Al-Brashdi, Reem Al-Tuqi received scholarships and travelled to Germany to attend the course.
