Prerequisite: Geology 1 (may be taken concurrently). Emphasis on the Geologic Time Scale, the fossil record, introductory biostratigraphy, radiometric dating, index fossils, fossil assemblages, mass extinctions, types of fossil preservation, Ice Ages and glacial events through time, paleogeography: plate tectonic configurations throughout time, etc. Transfer: CSU, UC; CSU GE: B1; IGETC: Area 5A Degree Applicable, Credit Grading Option: OP Laboratory exercises to support and reinforce the Historical Geology lecture course.Prerequisite: Geology 1 (completed with a grade of “C” or higher). Includes lab exercises in relative and absolute age-dating, biostratography, radiometric dating, the construction of geologic histories from geologic map data, types of fossil preservation, fossil identification and morphology of the common and important fossils throughout the Geologic Time Scale.The Earth, its materials, its internal and external processes, and its development through time.Emphasis is placed on a thorough global understanding of Plate Tectonics as a framework and foundation for subsequent geologic topics and concepts.Formation and development of the earth, its oceans, atmosphere and life through time. Transfer: CSU, UC; CSU GE: B1; IGETC: Area 5A Degree Applicable, Credit Grading Option: OP Laboratory course to supplement the oceanography lecture course.
Having learned earlier that all the atoms of an element are identical and are different from those of all other elements, students now come up against the idea that, on the contrary, atoms of the same element can differ in important ways. 79.) In this lesson, students will be asked to consider the case of when Frosty the Snowman met his demise (began to melt).
This lab can be used to investigate how geologists and archaeologists determine the ages of rocks and ancient artifacts.
Details and get access to Students will find two interactive exercises designed to help you learn about river processes like discharge, flooding, and flood frequency.
A "Certificate of Completion" will be available to each student at the end of each activity.
Details and get access to This is an interactive exercise about Geologic Time.
