ESCI 203 - Earth History

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
In this course we study the methods and principles employed in deciphering the geologic history of Earth and the development of life on the planet. We emphasize the geologic evolution of the North American continent through the lens of the Supercontinent Cycle and the main features of the fossil record. Students learn to recognize and characterize patterns in the biological and tectonic evolution of Earth through time, from formation to the present. Woven throughout the course is consideration of the history of geologic thought. John Zayac.

Two 75-minute periods; one 4-hour laboratory.
