Environ 284/GeoSci 284
Ben van der Pluijm
Environmental Geology examines the interactions between today's
human society and our dynamic planet. It begins with geologic
materials and processes, and goes on to specific topics that include
soils, ground water, natural hazards (volcanism, landslides,
earthquakes, floods), land surface and sea level, coasts, deserts, pollution and
global warming, energy resources and waste.
Previous experience in geological or environmental sciences is not required. The course includes two 1.5 hr lectures and one 1 hr discussion period (in which reading and exercises are discussed) per week. Evaluation is by means of class participation, discussions/exercises and three exams.
