HNRS 212 - Colloquium in Geology


Study of the earth including its origins, composition, and evolution of its continents and ocean basins through time. Processes such as plate tectonics, rock formation, climate change, and mountain building, and their effects on surface and subsurface evolution will be studied. The interplay between these Earth processes and human activity is also examined, in topics such as volcanology, earthquakes and flooding.
