To understand the nature and origin of energy arriving at the surface of the Earth from within the planet, the mechanisms of this energy transfer, and their global distribution. To understand the processes by which the competing forces of energy derived from the climate system and those from within the Earth interact to produce typical landscapes. To indicate the ways in which all of the above impinge upon human behavior and our interaction with our environment. 3 Instructors Teaching Assistants: Teaching Assistants are to be your point of contact for questions and concerns.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
