Georgia State University Geology 1122: Introductory Geosciences II Earth’s Internal Processes Spring Semester 2011 Instructor : Dr. Jeff B. Chaumba Office : 389 Kell Hall. E-mail: [email protected] Office Hours : T 3:00 – 4:00 pm and by appointment Text : Essentials of Geology, Stephen Marshak, W.W. Norton & Co. © 2009, 518p. Lectures : 11:00 am-12:15 pm; T, Th; Aderhold Learning Center 5 Credits: 4 (including lab component) Objectives : The objectives of this course are to learn about some of the important physical geologic processes which occurred a long time ago from the fossil record, evolution, how old our planet is, and how we determine the age of geologic materials. We are concerned about the important physical processes occurring at the Earth’s surface such as the hydrologic cycle, running water, glaciers, and global change. The course also aims to make students appreciate the importance of fossils in the evolution, stratigraphy, and the geologic time. The students will expected to be active participants in the scientific method through the laboratory exercises. Students will develop skills in critical thinking (via test questions), answering and posing questions (in class), elementary map reading and geologic interpretation (lab). Rationale: Geology 1122 focuses on the evolution of Earth through geologic time as well as significant surface processes such weathering and groundwater. Mechanism : In order to do well, read the assigned chapters in Marshak, attend the lectures and lab, and be an active participant in this course. As a way to prepare for tests, the questions at the end of each

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
