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. Lecture and one 2-hour lab section.

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. Lecture and ONE 2-hour lab section, students registering for GEOL 162 must also register for GEOL 162-51 OR -52. NOTE: Students who receive credit for GEOL 162 may not receive credit for GEOL 462

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. Students registering for GEOL 163-01 must also register for LAB section, GEOL 163-51. 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.

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. This course meets two evenings per week on campus, and students registering for GEOL 115-01 must also register for GEOL 115-61 the corresponding on-campus lab.

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. This LAB meets two evenings per week on campus, and students registering for GEOL 115-61 must also register for GEOL 115-01. NOTE: Students who receive credit for GEOL 115 may not receive credit for GEOL 102, 110, 111, or 114.

The qualitative description of landforms is pursued, in light of student's newly-gained analytical and quantitative understanding of processes. The labs focus on techniques used by geomorphologists to characterize landforms, soils, and the processes that shape them, including: air photo interpretation, analysis of digital topographic data, experimental simulation of landforms evolution, and field techniques in geomorphology. Students registering for GEOL 252-01 must also register for lab section GEOL 252-51. Prerequisite: one of GEOL 102, 110, 111, 113, 114, 115 or 161.

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. Students registering for GEOL 462-01 must also register for lab section GEOL 462-51. Prerequisite: One of GEOL 211, 220, 252 or 260, or permission of the instructor NOTE: Students who receive credit for GEOL 162 may not receive credit for GEOL 462.
