Course - Section Title Days Time Location
GEOL 211 - 01 Earth Materials M - W - F - - 0935 - 1040 OSS 123
CRN: 21519 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Tatiana Vislova 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

GEOL 114 - 01 Science of Natural Disaster - T - R - - - 0930 - 1145 OSS 124
CRN: 30055 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Tatiana Vislova 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.

GEOL 115 - 01 Environmental Geology M - W - F - - 1335 - 1440 OSS 127
CRN: 40684 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Tatiana Vislova This course emphasizes the interactions between humans and their environment, focusing on those processes and issues that are fundamentally geological in nature. Early in the course, students will be introduced to basic geoscience concepts and principals, the scientific method, plate tectonics, and earth materials (rocks and minerals). The remainder of the course will focus on specific topics at the interface between humans and their environment, including volcanic and earthquake hazards, human impacts on the hydrological cycle, surface and groundwater contamination, climate and the carbon cycle, nuclear waste storage, soil erosion, non-renewable resources, and slope stability. NOTE: Students who receive credit for GEOL 115 may not receive credit for GEOL 102, 110, 111, or 114.
