Course Description:


“Planetary Materials” is a part  of the project “Foreign high-quality Curriculum System introductions”,  that will
form a unique course system for the educations of planetary  science in China previously introduced from
Washington University.

Overall, as the fruit of deepen cooperation in planetary science  between Wash U and SDU.

This course is designed for students to study remote sensing and spectroscopy techniques and their applications
in planetary sciences, and to learn recent progresses and scientific results in planetary exploration. Using remote
sensing and spectroscopy, we can obtain elemental, mineralogical compositions, and rock types on surfaces of
solar system objects, understand associated geologic processes, origins, and evolution history.

The content of this course include: neutron/gamma ray/X ray/Mossbauer, IR/Raman, UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopies;
Planetary data processing;
Planetary surface geochemistry, mineralogy, and petrology; Planetary geologic processes, origin and evolution of
solar system objects.

Course Examination:

Students’ Final Scores = Scores of Ordinary Tests * 30% + Scores of the Final Exam * 70%;
Scores of ordinary tests vary according to students’ performance in attendance and homework.
The final exam will be a close-book exam.
