This 2.5 day workshop investigates provides MS & HS teachers with information about plate tectonics and earthquakes. It is geared to standards and Grade Span Expectations in Rhode Island. Over the next five ...
Environmental and Applied Geology
Katherine Scharer, Appalachian State University
Standard hazards and resources geology course. I continually emphasize physics and chemical processes that drive geologic outcomes, make students do a bit of math, and always incorporate current events.
Matt Brueseke, Kansas State University
This course seeks to provide a basic understanding of the physical nature of the Earth and how fundamental Earth processes can substantially affect how humans live.
Planet Earth's Geological Environment, GEOL 101
Klaus Neumann, Ball State University
Planet Earth's Geological Environment gives a general introduction into geology, and, building on that initial information, examines geologic hazards that affect human beings. This natural science core course ...
GEO 101: The Dynamic Earth
Delores Robinson, University of Alabama, The
This course is designed to study the Earth including materials, internal and external processes, deformational events, plate tectonics and geologic hazards. The course is lecture-based and involves the use of large ...
Introduction to Environmental Geosciences
Robert Stewart, Texas A & M University
This is a problems based course that introduces undergraduates to important environmental problems, including global change, water resources, coastal problems, air pollution and ozone depletion, and land use and ...
Carrie Davis Todd, University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown
This non-laboratory course is designed to cover key concepts in environmental geology, from natural hazards to resource extraction to environmental degradation to map interpretation. The course has no laboratory ...
