The geologic materials nearest the Earth's surface are those that interact with the biosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere. This course explores the nature of surficial geologic materials and processes by using geographic information system (GIS) tools and hydrological modeling software. Major topics are landform development, chemical weathering, soil development and quality, and surface and groundwater hydrology. Three meetings and one laboratory per week. The required credit-bearing laboratory session GEOL 210L must be taken and passed concurrently with GEOL 210. A previous earth science or geology course is recommended.
