GEOL 103 - How to Build a Habitable Planet


Is Earth one of many planets in an inhabited Universe, or is it the result of a low-probability accident? What does the answer to that question tell us about humans’ relationship to our planet? This course investigates the steps of planetary evolution and their significance to our current relationship to Earth. We will examine topics that range from the formation of the universe, galaxies, stars, our solar system, and Earth; the origin and function of Earth’s continents, oceans, and atmosphere; and how has Earth remained habitable through time.
