Geology

GEL 101: Introduction to Geology (P1 907L)

Credits: 3:2:4
This course focuses on earth materials and earth processes. Internal processes such as mountain building, faulting and earthquakes, folding, and volcanism are presented in the context of the theory of plate tectonics. Surface processes such as weathering, mass wasting and erosion are studied with respect to how they shape the earth’s surface and underground. Laboratories include rock, mineral, and fossil analysis and the interpretation of topographic maps, geologic maps, and stereograms.
