Petrology and Plate Tectonics
Allen Glazner, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
This course is organized around the igneous and metamorphic processes that govern the rock cycle, all within the context of plate tectonics. Rather than addressing igneous and metamorphic rocks and processes as ...
Rory McFadden, Carleton College
A systematic treatment of the geology and geophysics of plate tectonics, based on present knowledge of the structure and physical properties of the Earth's interior. Included are present kinematics of plate ...
The Plate Tectonics Revolution
Emily Peterman, Bowdoin College
Although only ~40 years old, the theory of plate tectonics provides a global framework to understand such varied phenomena as earthquakes, volcanoes, ocean basins and mountain systems both on continents (e.g. the ...
Plate Tectonics and Tectonic Hazards
John Creasy, Bates College
This is a topical course covering plate tectonics and associated hazards such as eartquakes, volcanic activity, and secondary hazards such as tsunami, landslides, etc. A companion topical course covers surficial ...
Sarah Titus, Carleton College
Introduction to Volcanology
Erouscilla Joseph, University of the West Indies
The course will introduce students to Plate tectonics and volcanoes; including the processes that takes place at active volcanoes (eruptive mechanisms, effusive and explosive volcanism); methods and instrumentation ...
Geology 101- Introductory Geology
Louis Bartek, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
This is an a Physical Geology course that focuses upon geologic processes and features with emphasis on using plate tectonics as an example of the scientific method in practice.
Geology 102: Introduction to Geology
Scott Johnston, California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo
This is a lecture-based course in which students are introduced to the broad field of geology including processes related to plate tectonics, petrology, and geomorphology. This class is supported by weekly ...
