15. GEOL 101: Physical Geology

Contact:Allan Ludman
Abstract:The terse Bulletin description of GEOL 101 (Physical Geology. 3 lec, 3 lab hrs,
4 cr. A study of the Earth including the relationshop of man to his
environment. Required field trip(s)) can only hint at the broad examination of
the Earth presented in this course. Students are introduced to the ways in
which geologists acquire information, ask, and answer questions about Earth
processes and materials. Major concepts are presented and hypotheses tested
concerning the composition, structure, and processes of the solid Earth and the
liquid and gaseous realms that lie upon it. An Earth Systems perspective
highlights interactions among these realms and their relationships with human
activity. Current and past hypotheses promulgated to explain the way in which
Earth works are explored and tested throughout the course, particularly in
laboratories and on field trips.
