GEOS 206 - Earth’s Interior: Its Character, Dynamics and Development

FC NSMA QFR
4 credits
Processes operating deep inside Earth control the shape of Earth’s surface and affect the composition and dynamics of continents, oceans and atmosphere. This course examines geologic and geophysical data pertaining to the character and dynamics of Earth’s interior. We analyze evidence relating mantle convection to plate tectonics, define and interpret the character and evolution of tectonic provinces, and assess whether Earth’s interior changed over time and how it might change in the future. Field trip(s) required.
Prerequisites & Notes: GEOS 120 (previously GEOL 120) or GEOS 124 (previously GEOL 124)
