Marine Geology
E&ES 335
Fall 2006 not offered

Almost two-thirds of the earth's surface is covered by oceans. Marine geology differs from traditional geology in several important ways. Among the most important is that its development and discoveries are technologically dependent. With new technology have come advances that revolutionized the way we think about our planet. This course will cover the change of creation and destruction of ocean basins and marine sediments as used to study climate change. A week-long field trip to Puerto Rico to look at an island arc complex will be an additional charge.
