Landscape Evolution

Credits: 4.0
Term: Fall 2019 - Full Term (08/26/2019 - 12/09/2019)
Class Size:   20  
CRN: 11404
Special Fees: $35.00
Course focuses on the processes that shape the Earth's surface. Lectures discuss the development of landscapes in a wide variety of climatic and geologic settings, with an emphasis on understanding the process mechanics that create landforms and surficial deposits. Labs involve topographic map interpretation, geomorphic data analysis, and short field exercises. Course incorporates one weekend field trip that explores the landscapes of Cape Cod. Students also gain practical experience in geomorphic research by teaming up and completing a required lab- or field-based project. Prereq: ESCI 401, ESCI 402, or permission. Lab. Special fee.
