Program Summary

What is Geology?

The word "Geology", is from the Greek γῆ, , i.e. "earth" and -λoγία, -logia, i.e. "study of, discourse".

We study the Earth to better understand how it works and its 4.5 billion-year history. Important topics today include environmental protection and global warming.

This exciting course has been revised to appeal to both science majors and non-science majors, the student will learn the methods TV meteorologists forecast the weather and then present the forecast to the television audience. The student will become familiar with a few simple techniques so that they can also make simple forecasts.  We will also study fascinating and relevant subjects such as hurricanes, tornadoes, including storm-chasers, and other weather-related disasters, controversial topics such as global warming and cloud-seeding.  Students will complete the course with a sense of appreciation for all the people and technology used in atmospheric science.
