GEO 167 Evolution of the Earth
We explore the evolution of Earth, its continents, oceans, climate and life. From it origins 4.6 billion years ago to today, we the history our planet’s changing environments is there for us to read in the rock and fossil records.
GEO 448 Plate Tectonics
An introduction to the historical development of Plate Tectonics as a unifying theory, plate boundary characteristics, plate motion on a sphere, role of plate tectonic cycle in renewal of Earth’s surface, and relation with other biogeochemical cycles.
GEO 502 Earth History
We look back through billions of years of geologic history focusing on major events and ongoing change in the distribution of continents and ocean basins, climate and the evolving life of our unique and dynamic planet.
GEO 601 Earth System Science for Educators
An introduction to Earth systems science that links content with pedagogy by modeling and analyzing teaching approaches in the classroom, the field and informal settings. This course explores the Earth system origin, evolution, structure, composition, and the dynamic processes that move matter and energy through the system.
GEO 603 Global Plate Dynamics
We examine the development of plate tectonic theory in its contemporary context, global plate motion, driving forces and mechanisms.
