EASC 104 - Geohazards - Earth in Turmoil (3)

An introduction to the range of geological hazards that affect the Earth, the environment and humanity. Topics covered will include the hazards and risks related to volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, landslides and avalanches, tsunamis, geomagnetic storms and other potentially cataclysmic events. The forecasting and possible mitigation of these geohazards will also be investigated. Students may not take EASC 104 for credit towards EASC major or minor program requirements.

EASC 106 - Earth Through Time (3)

An introduction to the changes that the Earth has experienced, from its initial formation to the present day, intended for non-majors. Topics include changes in plate tectonic style, mountain building periods, glaciations during Earth history, formation of life, the fossil record and evolution, major extinctions, and the rise of man. Students may not take EASC 106 for credit towards EASC major or minor program requirements. Breadth-Science.

EASC 107 - Economic Geological Resources (3)

An overview of Earth's major economic resources. Topics will include geologic processes which produce significant natural resources including metals, hydrocarbons and other energy resources, industrial minerals, and groundwater. Emphasis will be placed on relations between earth sciences and aspects of economics, business, history, politics, and environmental issues. Much of the focus will be on the changing nature of resource exploration and extraction, and how this may evolve in the near to distant future. Students may not use EASC 107 for credit towards Earth Sciences major or minor program requirements. Breadth-Science.

EASC 108 - Exploring the Solar System (3)

An introduction to the geology of our solar system through a comparative survey of the planets. Emphasis will be on the geology of the Earth and how we can use this knowledge to learn more about the neighboring planets. A wealth of accessible information now exists from which we can attempt to reconstruct the geological history of each planetary surface in our solar system. Comparative planetology will be used to explore such topics as the structure and origin of the solar system, the origin and fate of the Earth, the importance of water in the solar system, the formation and geological history of planetary lithospheres and atmospheres. Students may not use EASC 108 for credit towards Earth Sciences major or minor program requirements. Breadth-Science.
