GEO-151 Physical Geology

Acquaints the student with how earthquakes, active volcanoes and other geologic formations and processes relate to the theory of plate tectonics. The history of the theory of plate tectonics also illustrates how the scientific process works and how scientists propose hypotheses, gather evidence, discard ideas and modify them to support existing knowledge. The course stresses that Earth continues to evolve and that its future depends on our actions of today.
