CRN: 11398

Coastal Processes

Coastal Processes
The coastline represents a highly variable and dynamic region between land and water, with periods of dynamic change from days (tides and storms) to hundreds of thousands of years (global sea level variations). In many parts of the world, mankind's present and/or desired use of these fragile and transitory boundaries often conflicts with how these regions should be managed. Though the use of various case studies, this course will focus on coastline structure, dynamic interaction between ocean and land, sea level rise, as well as past use and newer management practices.

GEOL1033A-W14

CRN: 11314

Paleolimnology

Paleolimnology
In a glaciated region like the Northeast, lacustrine sediments can be analyzed to interpret evolution of a lake and the surrounding catchment since deglaciation. Students in this class will core a local lake through the ice and work in small groups analyzing the core in the laboratory. The results will be pooled, allowing each student to interpret the postglacial sedimentary, geomorphic, and ecologic history of the lake basin. Students will work independently and collectively, and will gain experience working with actual data on a project where the outcome is not known beforehand. Winter outdoor experience strongly recommended.

Geology & Landscapes of France

Geology & Landscapes of France
France hosts a remarkable variety of landscapes, created by a wide range of geological processes: continental rifting and volcanic activity, mountain building, canyon carving, and coastline processes. In this course we will consider the major forces that shape a country, and the influence of geology on its economy and cultural heritage: fossil fuel and mineral ores, building material for castles and cathedrals, and the notion of terroir in agriculture and winemaking. Students will be encouraged to research the geological history and attributes of their own home state or country.
