GEOL 210.51 Geomorphology and Lab 6 credits

Closed: Size: 18, Registered: 18, Waitlist: 0

Anderson Hall 123

Synonym: 61407

ChloƩ Fandel

A lab and field-focused introduction to water resources – the processes driving the water cycle, the methods used to quantify and understand the flow of water, and the relationship between humans and water. Weekly field trips to nearby locations such as streams, wellfields, caves, and water infrastructure to develop skills including streamflow measurements, water quality monitoring, pump tests, and measuring soil properties. No previous outdoor experience required.

Prerequisite: 100 level Geology course or instructor permission

GEOL 220.53 Tectonics and Lab 6 credits

Open: Size: 24, Registered: 6, Waitlist: 0

Anderson Hall 123

Synonym: 61736

Sarah J Titus

This course focuses on understanding the plate tectonics paradigm and its application to all types of plate boundaries. We will explore the historical development of the paradigm, geophysical tools used for imaging the structure of the Earth and determining plate motions, and possible driving mechanisms of this global system. Students will independently explore a particular tectonic plate in detail throughout the term. Laboratories included.

Prerequisite: One introductory (100-level) Geology course.

Sophomore Priority

Waitlist for Juniors and Seniors: GEOL 220.WL3 (Synonym 61737)

GEOL 360.54 Sedimentology and Stratigraphy and Lab 6 credits

Open: Size: 21, Registered: 17, Waitlist: 0

Anderson Hall 123

Synonym: 61738

Clint A Cowan

This course is based on field examination of outcrops of Lower Paleozoic sedimentary rock. We will interpret the processes involved in the creation, movement, and deposition of these ancient sediments, and try to determine their paleoenvironments. Also of interest are the transformation of these sediments into rock and the analysis and correlation of strata. Weekly laboratories, one overnight trip, and one Saturday trip are required. Please note the late laboratory times. Both paleobiology and geomorphology prepare students for work in sedimentology. This course is intended for upperclass Geology majors, and much of the work is done in teams.

Prerequisite: Three 200-level Geology courses

Extra Time for weekend field trips.

GEOL 400.00 Integrative Exercise 1-6 credits, S/CR/NC only

Open: Size: 25, Registered: 8, Waitlist: 0

Anderson Hall 123

Synonym: 61739


Each senior geology major must take a total of six credits of Geology 400. One of the credits will be awarded in the spring term for the preparation and delivery of a formal talk and attendance at the talks or other seniors. The other five credits must be taken in the fall and/or winter terms. Credits can be divided between those two terms or all five credits may be taken in the same term. All seniors must attend the Geology 400 seminars which will meet weekly fall and winter term. Geology 400 is a continuing course, and the grade will not be awarded until the end of spring term.
