This introductory geology laboratory course is intended for students interested in the natural sciences. It introduces the basic concepts and principles of physical geology including the study of volcanism, earthquakes, and mass wastage; the structure, function, and interpretation of topographic and geologic maps; the study of natural landforms; the study of local stream water quality; and the study and identification of minerals and rocks. The course uses a systems approach to concentrate on the interrelationship between the geologic environment and human impacts. It focuses on experiential learning through field trips, outdoor labs, group discussions, class discussions, and oral presentations. Hiking, canoeing, and stream quality analyses is an integral part of this course. (6 contact hours: 3 lecture, 3 lab) (OT36) [Catalog Entry] ADDITIONAL FEES: $38.00
