GEOL 416 - Marine Geology
The course is designed to provide a realistic understanding of rapidly evolving concepts in the field of geological oceanography. Sedimentary and geophysical data are discussed in the context of global plate tectonics. These data are used to examine the processes responsible for the origin and evolution of continental margins and ocean basins and to reconstruct global climate history. When offered, the credit-bearing laboratory GEOL 416L must be taken and passed concurrently with GEOL 416.
