Environmental Geology is a 4 credit, 6 contact hour lab course in which students examine the impact of geological processes upon humans -- such as volcanoes, radon, etc. -- and also the impact humans have upon geologic systems and processes -- such as water quality and ozone degradation.
Environmental Geology is taught every semester, normally in both morning and evening sections, and is also offered in the summers as well. Much classtime is spent in the field making observations and gathering data; day-long field trips on the weekend are routinely offered.
Environmental Geology should be considered by the following groups of students:
