SED 5440 - Introduction to Geology I

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 two half-day and two all-day 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.
