This introductory geomorphology course offers an integrative, applications-centered approach to the study of the Earth's dynamic surface. Upon completion of this course, students will obtain a basic understanding of Earth surface processes and the evolution of topography over short and long timescales. Examples of practical applications will be taught throughout this course, showing how scientists are using geomorphological research to tackle critical societal issues (natural disaster response, safer infrastructure, protecting species, and more). Not available for supplemental. Instruction (3.0), Lab (2.0). Requisite Courses: Take GEO-3383L (Required, Concurrent).
