NS 1500 - Geological Sciences


(3)
The course will be divided into two broad areas: physical and historical. The physical section examines Earth’s rocks and minerals, and seeks an understanding of the processes that operate beneath or upon the Earth’s surface. The historical aim is to understand the Earth’s origin and how it has changed through time. A chronology of physical and biological changes during the past 4.5 billion years will be established. This course, with NS 1501 , counts as the required four-hour level-one scientific-causal course in the liberal core. Three hours of lecture per week.

Corequisite: NS 1501 .
