Course Description

This is a laboratory course to support instruction in a physical geology course for the science major. Students engage in hands-on experimentation and participate in instructor led demonstrations reviewing select aspects of the properties of various mineral groups and of representative igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. Students engage in the drawing, review and analysis of topographic and geologic maps. The course prepares students in the appropriate use and calibration of the analytical techniques and equipment used by the geological community. Students review historical data related to the earth's internal structure, its magnetic and thermal properties, the fossil record, the distribution of the earth's mineral resources, and geologic hazards, among others, and prepare reports, charts, graphs and maps to display and interpret these data.

Prerequisites: High School Physics and Chemistry Co-Requisite: GEOL1000
