ENV 370 - Earth Surface Processes


4 Hour(s)
The processes, landforms, and sediments found on the Earth’s surface play a fundamental role in resource management, reclamation, and many other environmental issues. This course explores the relationships between surface landforms and the underlying geologic structures; processes of wind, water, ice, and gravity that shape the Earth’s surface; and the history of environmental and geologic change recorded in surface environments. Coursework focuses on qualitative and quantitative description of processes, landforms, and sediments through fieldwork and interpretation of aerial photographs, remote sensing images, and topographic and geologic maps.

Four hours of lecture/discussion and one three-hour laboratory.
