GEOLOGY 103: THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH AND GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE


Changes on the surface of the earth occur on time and spatial scales from brief severe regional coastal storms to continental glaciations. Studies of surficial processes and materials uillustrate the dynamic nature of the earth and provide a key to understanding past and future environmental changes.
