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.

  • GSCI 200: Environmental Geology

    A survey of important geologic concepts relevant to current environmental issues. Emphasis is placed on geologic principles underlying problems related to water resources, pollution, natural hazards, waste disposal, energy and mineral resources, and on the scientific bases for current strategies proposed to limit adverse consequences of our impact on environmental systems. The geologic information bases available from governmental agencies are used to characterize and demonstrate practical problems for classroom exercises. Although not required, a general survey course in geology, physical geography, or high school earth science would provide an appropriate background.

  • GSCI 361: Invertebrate Paleontology-Lab

    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.

  • 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.
