GEOL1000 - Intro To Physical Geology
Fall 2012

This course is a general introduction to physical geology for the science major. Properties of various mineral groups and of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks are reviewed. Historical development of the science of geology is reviewed. Plate tectonics and the processes of tectonism, erosion and weathering are integrated to show how landforms develop. Earth's internal structure and its magnetic and thermal properties are reviewed. The fossil record and the geologic time scale are discussed. The distribution of the earth's mineral resources and its various geologic hazards are reviewed. Course includes hands-on demonstrations of topics reviewed in lecture and experimentation utilizing the analytical techniques and equipment reviewed in the course. The course is intended to support the academic preparation of those students pursuing a degree in environmental science or another related discipline that requires an understanding of physical geology. The course provides professional preparation for environmental scientists, geologists and other earth science professionals. The course assumes some basic mastery of biology, chemistry and physics. Students not majoring in the natural sciences may enroll in the course upon consultation with their advisor.
