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 355: Basin Analysis

    An in-depth investigation of the dynamic processes that lead to basin formation, burial, deformation, and hydrocarbon production. Observational and quantitative forward datasets and techniques will be used to extract and constrain basin history. The mechanics and play of petroleum and coal exploration of basins will be an integral theme of the course. (Field trips can include exploring local basins and active drill sites.) Prerequisites: GSCI 220. Credit(s): 3(3-0) Offered fall, 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.
