GLS 357 Environmental Geology

3 Credit(s)

This course is an applied approach to environmental problems. We will focus on New England by expanding on preexisting theoretical knowledge with field trips and projects which emphasize local materials, i.e. glacial deposits, harbor sediments, crystalline rocks, and local problems. This is a lab and field oriented course intended to sharpen theory with practice. Two lecture hours and two laboratory hours per week. Field trips required, 1 weekend and several to local sites.

Prerequisites: One Geological Sciences 100-level laboratory course, or permission of Department Chairperson.
