EAS-101 General Earth Science
In General Earth Science students discover what Earth is made of, what its history has been and "how it works." The course explains what went into making our planet as well as how it has changed and transformed in the 13.7 billion years since the Big Bang. Students will be introduced to Earth's structure, the elements that make it up and such by-products of the planet's ceaseless activity as earthquakes and volcanoes. The course also covers Earth's oceans as well as its atmosphere and climate. Course content is drawn from the Teaching Company's course "How the Earth Works" presented by Dr. Michael E. Wysession.
