GEOSCI 116 is an introductory course covering all aspects of modern earth sciences. Students learn about rocks, minerals, and fossils, both in the classroom and in a variety of natural settings, which leads to discussion and understanding of topics such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, geoenvironmental problems, paleoceanography, and tectonic processes. In the first week classroom lectures are a key part of the course, after that, most of the time will be spent in the field on day trips and extended camping trips. About two weeks of the course involve field trips to other parts of Wyoming as well as Nevada, Montana, Idaho, and Utah. High elevation hiking is required and moderate to good physical fitness is necessary.
