GEOL 201 - Mineralogy and Geochemistry

Rocks and minerals are the stuff of which planets are composed. They are the source of nutrients that sustain all life on this planet, and the materials from which civilizations are built. Students come to understand the physical and chemical nature of minerals, and gain a familiarity with the most common minerals found on Earth. Other important topics covered include how and when Earth’s materials were formed, and how their physical and chemical behaviors both control and tell us about major processes on the planet.
