Course Description for Physical Geology

GLY2010: Physical Geology

Description: Physical Geology is that branch of geology concerned with understanding the composition of the earth and the physical processes that act on and beneath its surface, based on the study of rocks, minerals, and sediments, their structures and formations, and their origin and alteration. This course is designed for those students who may have taken Earth Science, but who wish to further their knowledge of Earth processes, but it is also designed, in part, for civil and coastal engineering students, plus coastal biology students, who require a foundation and basic understanding of Earth systems.
