Courses > GEL208 - Environmental Geology

Last Updated 10/24/2014 1:21 AM
Introduction to human interaction with the Earth, with a specific focus
on scientifically characterizing geologic processes at the Earth's surface
and how humans are affected by, and have in some cases modified those
processes. This course introduces the basic science and math concepts
we use to understand important topics in geologic hazards including
volcanoes, landslides, earthquakes, coastal processes, stream processes
and flooding. In addition, scientific principles are applied to important
problems related to groundwater, energy resource management and land use
that have faced every civilization over time, but are becoming much more
critical to life on this planet as human population and resource use
increase.
