Class Size:   20  
CRN: 51054

Course focuses on the nature and formation of our solar system and the planets associated bodies it contains, with emphasis on the physical and chemical processes significant in the system's origin and evolutionary history. Our approach provides the basis for understanding key differences between the Earth-like terrestrial planets and those farther out in the solar system (the gas giants). We also explore recent discoveries on Mars and moons of the gas giant planets and their implications for the search for life elsewhere in our solar system. Special fee.

ESCI 444A (H01) - Philosophy of Earth Science

Hon/Philosphy of Earth Science

Credits: 4.0
Term: Spring 2020 - Full Term (01/21/2020 - 05/04/2020)
Class Size:   20  
CRN: 56467
Course provides an introduction to the discipline of Philosophy of Science, but from an Earth Science perspective. Considers various philosophical perspectives on the nature of science and scientific progress, drawing from works by thinkers such as Aristotle, Popper, Kuhn and Lakatos. Particular attention is given to the following questions: What is scientific knowledge? Is the acquisition of scientific knowledge a rational process? And, what makes some scientific discoveries "revolutionary"? These questions are considered using examples from the history of scientific progress in the Earth Sciences, focusing on groundbreaking discoveries such as the age of the earth, the evolution of organisms as observed in the fossil record, sea-floor spreading, and modern-day global warming.

Introductory-level focusing on interactions between Earth system and its inhabitants, with special emphasis on understanding societal implications of Earth system processes. Topics include Earth's interior processes, volcanism, earthquakes, climate change, storms, tornadoes, and biological change. Students are expected to learn about Earth system processes and critique cinematic portrayal of such processes. Taken together this approach affords building a foundation in the natural sciences and provides insights into societal portrayal of scientific ideas.
