Primary Instructor:

EARTH 119 / ENVIRON 119 is a basic single-term course in introductory geology concentrating on the evolution of the Earth in physical and chemical terms. Reference to the interaction of the external biosphere—atmosphere—hydrosphere with the Earth's interior is an essential component of the course.

Topics covered include:

  • plate tectonics: continental collision and fragmentation
  • minerals, rocks of sedimentary, igneous or metamorphic type
  • tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanoes
  • evolution and extinction: dinosaurs and the fossil record
  • glaciers, global warming, and climate change
  • geologic time

Course Requirements:

No data submitted

Intended Audience:

No data submitted

Class Format:

Lectures 3 hours per week. A separate discussion section for 1 hour each week is scheduled for review and discussion of topics covered in class.

To also enroll in the Introductory Geology Laboratory, register for any section of EARTH 118 / ENVIRON 118. The 118 labs provide a practical study of minerals, rocks, fossils, and geologic maps. Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in both EARTH 118&119 or ENVIRON 118&119, since the lab sessions complement the lectures and discussions.
