Course

Marine Environmental Geology part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Courses
Marine Environmental Geology is a problem-based service-learning course that focuses on addressing water quality issues in nearby Casco Bay. Working with our community partner, The Friends of Casco Bay, a non-profit watchdog group, our students, study the problems posed to them and propose a program of field study, which they carryout. Working in small groups they analyze their data and present their findings orally, as posters, and as a final report. In addition to preparing them to do these projects, traditional lectures and labs briefly cover plate tectonics, sea level change, the oceans and climate change, and global fisheries.
