Environmental geochemistry is a growing and dynamic field in geology which explores past and present environments for their chemical characteristics and environmental quality. In this course we will explore the applications of chemistry to solve geological and environmental problems, with an emphasis on freshwater environments. Students will get hands-on field and laboratory experience investigating Minnesota rock formations and lake sediments using several different geochemical methods. Students registering for GEOL 310-01 must also register for GEOL 310-51. Prerequisites: one of GEOL 110, 111, 113, 114, 115, 161; and CHEM 111 or permission of instructor.

Melissa A. Lamb

This is the first course in a year-long sequence that covers the fundamentals of petrology and structural geology in a global tectonic framework. The course begins with a discussion of plate tectonics and then examines each of the major plate settings and their boundaries. This will include the formation of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. Labs will include hand specimen identification and the use of the petrographic microscope. The course will also examine the conditions of rock deformation and the typical structural features of each tectonic setting. Labs will cover structural geology techniques including recognition and analysis of features in the field and in hand samples. In the fall semester the focus will be on the petrology of the mantle and lithosphere as well as divergent margins. In the spring semester, the focus will be on convergent margins. There will be several field trips as part of this course, ranging from 1-4 days, in the early fall and late spring. Students registering for GEOL 340-01 must also register for GEOL 340-51. Prerequisites: one of GEOL 110, 111, 113, 114, 115 or 161; GEOL 211 and 320 or permission of the instructor

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.

Climate change is among the most pressing challenges in our world today. In this course we will explore the Earth's climate system and the climatic changes that have occurred during the history of our planet. We will use a number of geological "fingerprints" to examine past climate and modern data to examine climate change in recent decades. You will gain hands-on experience collecting, analyzing, and interpreting climate data in several laboratory projects and in course exercises designed with an emphasis on scientific inquiry and problem solving.

Instructor:

Jeni A. McDermott

This course examines geologic systems that occur at or near the Earth’s surface with a focus on processes that interact directly with human infrastructure. Effective and safe civil engineering requires an understanding of the materials upon which infrastructure is built and this course aims to provide an introduction to materials at the Earth’s surface and their response to construction and human alteration. Topics to be covered include an introduction to geologic materials (rocks, minerals, and soils), basic principles of hydrology including groundwater flow, river flow (open-channel flow), and water quality and treatment, slope stability and erosion, and surveying. The course includes weekly lab meetings to allow students to explore the topics in greater depth and apply their knowledge to real-world problems. This course is required for ENGR Civil Engineering majors, can serve as an introductory geology course for Geology and Environmental Science majors, and will satisfy the lab-science requirement for non-majors.

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.
