This course surveys the geologic evolution of Michigan and the surrounding Great Lakes region in the context of modern geologic theory. The course can be taken by students with no background in geology, although a background in high-school level science and math is necessary. It begins with a review of important basic geologic principles and uses this foundation to illustrate more advanced geologic concepts with examples from Michigan and the Great Lakes region. This approach permits the course to deal with problems that are of present research interest to geoscientists, such as formation of the early continents, evolution of important continental features such as the Michigan Basin and Mid-Continent Rift, as well geologically more recent continental glaciation. Throughout the course, attention is given to the important mineral resources of the region, such as copper, iron, oil and gas, and salt. The course consists of lectures and take-home exercises involving map interpretation that are designed to illustrate the points being made in class. A book is recommended for the course and a course pack is required.
