This course introduces and unifies the central theories of geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. Students study the universe and solar system, the planet Earth and its constituents, rocks and minerals, drifting crustal plates, and processes such as mountain building and earthquakes. Students also study oceans and shorelines, the atmosphere, and climate. The effect of these disparate realms on life, past and present, is considered along with the effects of pollution of the natural environment. Field trips may be required. C-ID: GEOL 121. NR
