GLS 295 Climate Change in the Geologic Record

3 Credit(s)

This course examines how the geologic record is used to document and understand the history of the climate system. A multidisciplinary approach is used to explore the climate responses of Earth’s major systems (ice, water, air, vegetation, and land) as they developed through earth history. The course will emphasize the interconnection of data, theory, and theory testing within the context of a climate system changing across a broad range of time scales. Three lecture hours per week.

Prerequisites: One Geological Sciences 100-level laboratory course, or GPH 100P or permission of Department Chairperson; GLS 102 recommended.
