GEOL 152 - Soils and Society

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4NS, QFR

Soils are the basis for the formation of our societies - we need soil to grow crops and to have land for our animals to graze. However, our activities greatly alter the soils that we rely on, reducing our ability to productively use the land we live on. Through the use of case studies from regions around the world, students will learn the basics of soil science, hillslope geomorphology, and anthropogenic effects on these systems.
