Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 2 Hours

“Civilization exists by geologic consent, subject to change without notice” is a quotation often ascribed to historian Will Durant.

Emphasis will be placed on the geologic origin of natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and meteorite impacts as well as their impacts on society. Enrollment Limit: 30.
