Course description:(Formerly GEOL 113) This course is a survey of environmental geology with an introduction to problems of pollution, population, human relations to the environment, resource use, geologic hazards and environmental problems. The course covers the major components of the Earth system, i.e. atmosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere, and how they are related. Environmental Geology addresses the mechanisms that drive these Earth processes, how different parts of the Earth are connected, how matter and energy flow through our environment, and how humans fit into the environmental systems.
