This introductory geology course focuses on how and why natural disasters occur, as well as on their effects and how scientists study them. The course will examine internal and external earth processes and in particular how these processes impact humans. Course emphases will be upon the principles underlying natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, floods, coastal processes, and extinctions. We will use case studies of recent and historic events to understand these natural processes. NOTE: Students who receive credit for GEOL 114 may not receive credit for GEOL 102, 110, 111, or 115.

The course introduces fundamental geologic concepts while examining the major tectonic, chemical and biological events that shaped the Earth through time. It will include a study of fossils, sedimentary structures, depositional environments, radiometric dating techniques, and other tools geoscientists use to interpret the past. Throughout the course global events will be studied but focus will be on the North American continent.

Earth's materials record the vast history of the earth, help us understand current earth processes and are vital to our daily living. By the end of this course, you will be able to identify many common Earth materials and their components, describe how they formed, state where on or in Earth they typically form, and describe their economic and environmental importance. We will travel to the Badlands and Black Hills, SD, to collect data from several field sites for analysis during the rest of the semester. Prerequisite: one of GEOL 102, 110, 111, 113, 114, 115 or 161
