Lectures: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-9:50 in Lapham 162
Course Goals: The Earth is a dynamic and exciting place. In this course, you will learn about the origin, structure, composition, evolution, and dynamic processes of the Earth. You will also be encouraged to learn about how geologists think and how scientific ideas progress. A basic knowledge of geology is necessary for citizens to make informed choices about how they interact with their local, national, or global environment. I hope that you will find the study of geology exciting (as I do) and that it will make you look at old landscapes in a new way.
