GEOL 2150 - Geomorphology (4CR)


Geomorphology is the study of the forces and processes that shape Earth’s surface, and the examination and classification of the resulting landforms. This course covers the basic concepts and terminology of fluvial (stream), glacial, arid (desert), coastal, groundwater, and mass wasting (landslide) environments. Through the use of maps, aerial and satellite imagery, and field and laboratory work, students gain understanding of the complex interaction between the deep earth, the surface environment, and the external forces of weather, climate, and incoming solar energy.
