E2S2 Solid Earth

You are here

Course Code: 
Course Description: 
This is an introductory course designed to provide a broad overview of physical geology. The emphasis is on the materials that comprise the solid earth and the physical processes by which these materials are accumulated and transformed. These processes occur over a wide range of time scales, from seconds (for example, earthquakes) to millions of years (for example, mountain building). In addition, this course provides an overview of the basic scientific methods used by all scientists. Since geology is interdisciplinary in nature, we use other scientific disciplines as well, especially chemistry, physics, and mathematics.
