    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it provides a great introduction to how principals of mechanics are applied to geology. Professor Bergantz does an excellent job at explaining the concepts of a course in ways that everyone in the class can understand.

    Course highlights:

    In this course we learned about several interesting topics that cross mechanics with geology. They included: Heat flux through the earth's crust - how it is measured and modeled. Strength of geologic materials and how to represent them with Mohr circles. The principle of isostacy - how it is measured and modeled. Fluid flow under pressure (working with Bernoulli's equation) Porous media flow - how it is measured and modeled.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The labs are much easier if you have prior experience with Matlab. Prepare a lot for the midterm and final exams, they make up a lot of your grade. Make sure you understand how to use all aspects of Mohr's circle.
