ENV-3130 Environmental Geology

4 credits (with lab)

Prerequisite: ENV-1050.

Environmental geology focuses on the relationship between people and the physical environment. This course will expose students to hazardous earth processes such as floods, seismic activity, landslides, volcanic activity and coastal threats. A limited understanding of soil formation, soil texture, porosity and permeability is of utmost importance to environmental issues and will also be addressed in this course.
