GEO-1166 Physical Geology

3.0 credits

Geology is the scientific study of the Earth. Physical geology is the division of geology concerned with Earth materials, changes in the surface and interior of the Earth, and the dynamic forces that cause those changes. In the weekly lab exercises, students will learn to identify the common rocks and minerals and to analyse bedrock structures and surficial landforms through the use of maps and airphotos. Field trips will afford students the opportunities to study southern Alberta examples of geological features in their field settings. Not available for supplemental.

Equivalencies: GEO-166,RRM-266.
