Plate Tectonics
Sarah Titus, Carleton College

Plate Tectonics
Rory McFadden, Gustavus Adolphus 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Earthquakes and Volcanoes
Ignacio Pujana, The University of Texas at Dallas
This is an interdisciplinary science course offered in an online format. A flexible approach based on programmed self-instruction, with frequent tests to monitor progress, substitutes for the usual lecture with ...

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 ...

Historical Geology
John Chadwick, College of Charleston
This course will be taught once per year. It provides an overview of geological and biological processes and of major geological and evolutionary events in Earth's history. It uses lecture and hands-on ...

Geology of the National Parks
Lisa Lamb, University of St. Thomas (MN)
This is an introductory physical geology course for 64-100 mainly non-science students that uses the National Parks as the focus. Modules are built around a geology theme, such as structure or sedimentary rocks, ...

Earth and Life Through Time
Francis Jones, University of British Columbia
Students' abilities to use both geological and biological reasoning are developed, to learn about how the rock and fossil records together characterize the history of interaction between biological and ...
