Daniel Murray, University of Rhode Island
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 ...
Natural Hazards and Catastrophes
Alan Whittington, University of Missouri-Columbia
1 credit hour course for non-scientists, with no pre-requisites. Aims to improve quantitative and scientific literacy through applying simple skills to topics including global climate change, earthquakes, volcanoes ...
Natural Disasters and Earth Resources
Mathieu Richaud, California State University-Fresno
Processes and materials that produce the different geologic resources and hazards (earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, landslides). Plate tectonic theory. Emphasizes the relationship between geology and humans.
Solid Earth Geophysics
Laura Wetzel, Eckerd College
An introduction to the quantitative analysis of Earth structure and plate tectonics using earthquake seismology, seismic reflection and refraction, gravity, magnetics, and heat flow.
The Dynamic Earth (Physical Geology)
Kristin Riker-Coleman, University of Wisconsin-Superior
Students are introduced to the basic materials of the Earth and the processes that shape them/it. The course covers plate tectonics (including volcanic activities and earthquakes) as well as more the more surficial ...
(Introduction to) Physical Geology
John Leland, Glendale Community College
Physical Geology is a course in which students will learn about earthquakes, volcanoes, Earth's history, the processes that shape Earth's surface, and about Earth's resources. Students will witness ...
Dan Morgan, Vanderbilt University
This course addresses many topics about how rocks break and deform, for which I try to emphasize applications to earthquakes, hydraulic fracturing, hydrocarbon extraction, and landscape evolution.
Introduction to Global Geophysics
Steve Dickman, SUNY at Binghamton
Application of physical concepts to understanding the solid earth. Topics: origin of Earth; gravitational and geomagnetic fields and effects; earthquakes and seismic waves; composition and structure of Earth's ...
GEOL 1001 Physical Geology
Gary Byerly, Louisiana State University
Physical Geology examines the physical and chemical processes that operate within Earth's dynamic systems, including the tectonic system responsible for earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain-building, as well ...
