Sedimentology and Stratigraphy
Amy Weislogel, West Virginia University
This is a lecture and laboratory course that emphasizes knowledge and skills used in describing, measuring and interpreting the characteristics of sedimentary rocks which preserve a historical record of erosion, ...

Sedimentary Geology GEOL 330
Janis Treworgy, Principia College
The course covers the many aspects of sedimentary rocks – petrography of sedimentary rocks, sedimentary processes, depositional environments, facies analysis, and principles of stratigraphy. Practical skills are ...

Earth Surface Processes
Amanda Schmidt, Oberlin College
This course takes a watershed approach to surface processes starting with making sediment, routing it down hillslopes, and into rivers. The class meets three times a week (2x80 min, 1x3 hr) - 80 minutes are used ...

Paleontology
Elizabeth Rhenberg, Ohio State University-Main Campus
The course will teach the nature of the fossil record and how they are used in study of the history of the earth. Topics will include preservation, functional morphology, paleoecology, and systmatics among others. ...

Geomorphology
Les Hasbargen, SUNY College at Oneonta
The course explores the shape of the land, and the various processes and influences which are responsible for that shape. These include tectonic activity, climate, rock types, biological processes, chemical ...

Geomorphology
Lisa Tranel, Illinois State University
This class investigates the surface processes that shape the earth's landscape features. Through our discussions and lab activities, we will evaluate how erosion or deposition of materials creates new features ...
