2014 Fall

  • GEOL 103-020 INTRO TO PHYSICAL GEOLOGY
    Introduction to the nature and character of the Earth’s crust and the geological processes that generate and shape landform features. Topics include minerals, rocks, earth structure and plate tectonics, geological processes and associated landforms. Three one-hour lectures and one two-hour laboratory per week. Meets General Education IVA or IVB (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIA or IIIB).
  • GEOL 103-021 INTRO TO PHYSICAL GEOLOGY
    Introduction to the nature and character of the Earth’s crust and the geological processes that generate and shape landform features. Topics include minerals, rocks, earth structure and plate tectonics, geological processes and associated landforms. Three one-hour lectures and one two-hour laboratory per week. Meets General Education IVA or IVB (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIA or IIIB).
  • GEOL 103-022 INTRO TO PHYSICAL GEOLOGY
    Introduction to the nature and character of the Earth’s crust and the geological processes that generate and shape landform features. Topics include minerals, rocks, earth structure and plate tectonics, geological processes and associated landforms. Three one-hour lectures and one two-hour laboratory per week. Meets General Education IVA or IVB (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIA or IIIB).
  • GEOL 206-010 HISTORICAL GEOLOGY
    Study of the history of the earth and the principles used to decipher the earth's past from the rock record. Includes study of stratigraphic principles, key fossil groups and relative and absolute dating techniques. One weekend field trip is required. Prerequisite: C or better in GEOL 103. Three hours lecture, two hours lab per week.
  • GEOL 336-001 STRATIGRPHY & SEDIMENTLGY
    Introduces students to the fundaments of stratigraphy and sedimentology, and places a particular emphasis on the identification, occurrence, and analysis of sediments and sedimentary rock facies. Numerous field trips apply lecture content in the field to reconstruct Appalachian geology. Learn how to map geologic rock formations in the field and measure stratigraphic section, two skills that are integral to any professional geologist and research geologist. Prerequisites: GEOL 206, 211. Three hours per week.
  • GEOL 465-001 EARTH SCIENCE SEMINAR
    Discussions of the scientific process and timely topics in earth science and related fields. Requires participation and presentations. Prerequisite: Junior standing or permission of instructor. Two hours per week.

Meets General Education IVA or IVB (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIA or IIIB).
  • GEOL 211-001 SEDIMENT ANALYSIS
    Lab-based course designed to introduce students to the most common methodologies field scientists use to measure, analyze and classify sediments. Two hours laboratory per week.
  • GEOL 322-001 GEOLOGICAL OCEANOGRAPHY
    Explore the major features of the ocean basins and seafloor as well as the processes responsible for their formation. Discuss geological and geophysical techniques for mapping and understanding these processes. Prerequisites: GEOG 111. Three hours per week.
