The terse Bulletin description of GEOL 101 (Physical Geology. 3 lec, 3 lab hrs, 4 cr. A study of the Earth including the relationshop of man to his environment. Required field trip(s)) can only hint at the broad examination of the Earth presented in this course. Students are introduced to the ways in which geologists acquire information, ask, and answer questions about Earth processes and materials. Major concepts are presented and hypotheses tested concerning the composition, structure, and processes of the solid Earth and the liquid and gaseous realms that lie upon it. An Earth Systems perspective highlights interactions among these realms and their relationships with human activity. Current and past hypotheses promulgated to explain the way in which Earth works are explored and tested throughout the course, particularly in laboratories and on field trips.
