Winter Academic Term, 2004 (January 6 - April 30)


Introductory Courses and Courses for Non-concentrators

G.S. 100-115 are short (half-term) courses. They consist of detailed examinations of restricted geologic topics. The department lists the specific courses from this series in the Time Schedule for the terms they are offered (fall and winter terms only). Each course, when offered, meets twice weekly for half of the term (first half or second half), and the specific dates for each course are printed in the Time Schedule. These courses are designed primarily for students with no prior geologic training and they are open to all interested persons. G.S. 100-115 are offered on the graded pattern (optional pass/fail).


GEOSCI 100. Coral Reefs.

Introductory Courses and Courses for Non-concentrators

Section 001 — MEETS JAN 6 THRU FEB 19. FINAL EXAM ON FEB 19 UNLESS OTHERWISE ARRANGED. (Drop/Add deadline=January 26).

Instructor(s): Philip A Meyers (pameyers@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (1). (NS). (BS). May not be repeated for credit. No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in GEOSCI 156.

Mini/Short course

Credits: (1).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

Coral Reefs will be an in-depth tour of the biological and physical processes active in modern reef systems to provide a detailed understanding of the ecology of the individual organisms and the complex nature of their interactions within the reef community. Evolution of the reef community will be examined, ranging from the crude framework structures formed over one billion years ago by primitive algae to the luxuriant and diversified reefs of the modern-day oceans, to define the evolutionary strategies of reef building organisms. By tracking these evolutionary strategies through geologic time, the implications of man's intervention with the Earth's hydrosphere and atmosphere on the character of future reef communities will be considered.

This course will introduce students to several principles of that underlie the discipline of paleobiology using dinosaurs as primary, though not exclusive, exemplars. It is intended for students with an interest in geology, paleontology, or evolution, but does not require prior training in these fields. Two perspectives will be stressed, that of "deep time" and that of scale and size. With a focus on "deep time" we will explore (1) a short narrative history of life on earth, with special emphasis on dinosaur history and (2) extinctions. The focus on size will stress its importance to biology, ecology and evolution of organisms, and specifically dinosaurs. There will be two lectures each week and a single exam at the end of the course.

The history of past oceanic inhabitants, events, and environments is recorded in the sediments which have accumulated on the ocean bottom throughout geologic time. Fossils of marine plants and animals are a major part of the historical record; they give evidence of past oceanic living conditions and the evolution of life forms in the sea. Sediment particles eroded from land and carried to the oceans by rivers and winds provide insights into past climates on continents. Changes in ocean currents and in seawater chemistry have left their mark on the sediment record; the possible causes of these changes are explored. Plate tectonics and seafloor spreading have rearranged the shapes of ocean basins and repositioned continents over time. These processes are reflected in the record in marine sediments still present on the ocean floor and also in those now uplifted to form part of the continents. Occasional quizzes and a single exam at the end of the course will determine the course grade.

There has never been a greater chasm between the importance of science to society and society's understanding of it. Reporting on scientific discoveries and technological advances are often biased, inaccurate, or wrong. We will examine the relationship between science and the media and try to answer the following questions: Is scientific reporting fair, accurate, and informed? Is it sensationalist? Can the public evaluate the scientific information presented to them? How do scientists communicate their work? We will use case histories, primarily from the earth and environmental sciences to address these questions. We will cover the basic concepts and facts behind each case, and discuss its presentation to the public. We will use a variety of resources ranging from newspaper and TV reports to the Internet. Members of the university and local media will participate. No prerequisites. High school science highly recommended. Evaluation will be based on midterm and final projects.

The theory of plate tectonics, called dogma by some and paradigm by others, describes the mobility of continental and oceanic domains of the Earth's crust, as they are in constant motion along plate boundaries with respect to each other. The theory explains earthquakes and volcanoes, the topography of the Earth and the faunal and floral diversity of its living and fossil inhabitants. Tectonic events also exert a major influence on long-term climate. Lectures about the evidence also explore alternative explanations. The course involves three hours of weekly meeting time, a textbook and selected reading material. No background in Earth science is necessary. Evaluation is based on class participation, two exams, a series of student presentations on selected topics and written essays on the same subject.

This course explores the characteristic of the Earth's climate system and how the various components of that system operate to produce times when extensive ice sheets cover large parts of the Earth's surface. The role of each of the major components of the climate sstem will be discussed in detail. These include the ice sheets themselves, the astronomical inputs, the oceans, the atmosphere, and the movement of the continental and ocean boundaries. Reconstructions of past climatic conditions are presented and discussed in terms of how they are developed, what they can tell us about climatic extremes, and how they can be used to test the models that simulate modern climate patterns. The long term climate change associated with the most recent ice age is then contrasted with more rapid climate oscillations, particularly the climatic warming which has been associated with the recent large increase in atmospheric "greenhouse gases."

The dynamic Earth has given us oceans, continents, and an atmosphere. Its continuing activity is manifested today by the destructive powers of such natural phenomena as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and mountain building. The unifying concept of plate tectonics contains the clue to the shape and changes in the physical environment of the Earth from its initial formation to today. Our goal is to present a fully integrated approach to the evolving Earth's unique features in our solar system and explain its physical and chemical principles using conceptual and factual material. Extensive use is made of videos, slides, and classroom demonstrations. Two lectures/week; evaluation based on midterm and final exam. No special background required. This course can be taken singly or concurrently with its companion course (GEOSCI 206); together they constitute a balanced introduction to modern Earth Sciences.

This course is a required part of the Environmental Geology concentration program. It comprises an introduction to the inorganic materials that occur near the earth's surface and their role in environmental processes. The course consists of:

  • an introduction to matter and review of the elements and the structure of the atoms;
  • the nature of gases and molecules in the earth's atmosphere and their role in precipitation, sunlight filtration, and other processes;
  • geological fluids and the hydrosphere;
  • solid earth materials including minerals, their systematics, relationships between structure, bonding and behavior, and their combination in composites (rocks); and
  • processes and concepts such as diagenesis, the evolution of soils, and global geochemical cycles, in which all geospheres participate in essential ways.

In our study of the materials science of nature, we will explore such questions as: How do the physical and chemical nature of earth materials govern our environment? How do bonding and structure determine the properties of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, solid earth, and biosphere? How do transformation and change of earth materials mediate interactions among geospheres? Laboratory will explore the properties and characteristics of gaseous, fluid, and solid earth materials. There will be a midterm, final exam, and a term paper.

Petrology is the study of the origins of rocks. Emphasis is placed on igneous and metamorphic rocks in this course. The evidence for the deep crustal and upper mantle sources of igneous rocks is traced using petrographic, geochemical, and phase diagrammatic observations. In metamorphic petrology the response of metamorphites to changes in pressure, temperature, and fluid composition will be evaluated, primarily using petrographic and phase equilibrium data. Plate tectonic processes will be tied in to the origin and evolution of many igneous and metamorphic rocks. Some comparisons with extra-terrestrial igneous petrology will be made. The lectures are coordinated with microscopic laboratories using optical techniques to identify and evaluate mineral assemblages. The grade is determined through a combination of midterms, laboratory exams, and a final.
