ENV 2117 - Environmental Geology

Credits: 4.00
How do geological processes on the surface of the Earth affect human societies? How do humans change Earth’s surface? These two questions will be addressed as this course explores the geological processes that interact with the global environment and human societies. Major environmental geological problems will be addressed such as water and soil resources, mineral resources, and geological hazards. Special attention will be given to local environmental geology problems in Maryland. Examples of laboratory activities include reading and interpreting topographic maps, slope stability, groundwater and surface water resources, and earthquakes.
