Course description

Geology is the most exciting and ‘hands-on’ of the sciences. Geology is the study of a dynamic Earth that is changing daily due to tectonics, volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides, meteorite impacts, tsunami, weathering, and more. This course is an ‘introduction’ and it begins by outlining the formation of the Earth and Moon as seen in context with the formation of the Universe and Solar System. The course then examines the properties of the Earth, its dynamic activities, its rocks, minerals, and fossils, and the use of minerals and rocks. The course closes with an examination of Geology-related careers.
