Classes

  • GSCI 121: N/Our Geological EnvironmntLab

    An introduction to description and interpretation of rocks, geologic, and topographic maps. Students will learn identification techniques, data collection, and systematic analysis of data sets to better understand earth processes. Corequisite: GSCI 120.

  • GSCI 335: Paleoclimatology-Lec

    The study of fundamental concepts of global-scale environmental and climatic changes in the context of Earth-surface processes and Earth history. The course focuses on physical, chemical and biological signatures of past environments preserved in the geologic record; causes and effects of major climate-changes over various timescales in Earth history; and geologic responses to Pleistocene, Holocene and historical climate change. Laboratory exercises involve charaterizing surface processes, data-rich studies of climate-change records and discussions of climate science literature. Prerequisites: GSCi 170. Offered spring, odd years

  • GSCI 361: Invertebrate Paleontology-Lec

    Taxonomy and morphology of major groups of invertebrate fossils. Topics include fossil invertebrate classification, evolution, taphonomy, biostratigraphy, paleoecology, and paleobiogeography. (Required field trips conducted outside of class hours.) Prerequisites: C- or higher in GSCI 170 or permission of instructor. Offered every spring.
