GEY 1111 - Introduction to Geology I

[Choice:NS] This course investigates changes that have occurred in landscapes over a long time which are detected by a study of the processes of rock weathering, erosion, deposition, regional uplift and subsidence, folding and faulting, metamorphism and igneous activity. The instruction proposes a partial geologic history of northern New England that appears consistent with these processes and also consistent with observations made on field trips. The course provides exercises using topographic maps, vertical aerial photographs and geologic maps. The course requires three classroom hours and one two-hour lab per week.

Prerequisites & Notes
There is a lab fee. This course is offered every spring.
