ESC 201 - Environmental Geology

1 course unit
Organisms are inextricably bound to their physical environments.  An understanding of the interactions between the earth’s geology and biology is therefore fundamental to a study of environmental science.  This course examines earth’s physical environments as they relate to environmental science.  Topics will include the basic principles of geology, natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes, mass wasting, flooding, and the global hydrologic cycle.  Global water resources will be examined with an emphasis placed on groundwater supply, movement, and pollution. Three hours of lecture/discussion and three hours of laboratory per week.
Offered alternate years.
Meets general academic requirements SC and W.
