Course taught by Dr. Roger
Earth science is “the study of the structure and the processes of the world around us,” from the center of the earth to the most distant star. The four main areas of earth science are geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. This course will explore a number of areas of earth science, including volcanology; seismology; paleontology; sedimentology; the biology, geology, physics, and chemistry of the oceans; the science of climate and weather; the atmosphere; the history of astronomy; telescopes and mapping the night sky; the sun; the planets; rockets and artificial satellites; origins of the universe; and plate tectonics.
