GEOL 525. Geobiology: The Coevolution of Life and Rocks. 3 Hours N.

This course is an exploration of the parallel evolution of life and the Earth. In the almost 4 billion years since life first appeared, biological processes have been influencing and been influenced by physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, and inside the Earth. Microbial processes helped form fossils, reefs, and the oxygen we all breathe; the traces microbes leave behind in the rock record inform our understanding of how life originated and evolved on Earth, what environmental changes triggered the Big Five mass extinctions, and guide NASA's exploration of the solar system. Prerequisite: BIOL 152 and GEOL 101. LEC.

Why study geology? In Geology you get to apply techniques and knowledge from chemistry, physics, biology and math to answer important questions about Earth processes, history and future. Geologists are in demand to evaluate geologic hazards, evaluate natural resources, and understand the environment. The B.S. program provides intensive training in geology and other sciences. B.S. majors may emphasize traditional geology, environmental geology (with a specialized track in hydrogeology), engineering geology, geophysics, or earth and space science licensure. The hydrogeology track, the engineering geology option, and the geophysics option combine basic training in geology with training in mathematics, engineering, physics, and geophysics. The environmental geology option combines training in geology with many different sciences.

Why study geology? In Geology you get to apply techniques and knowledge from chemistry, physics, biology and math to answer important questions about Earth processes, history and future. Geologists are in demand to evaluate geologic hazards, evaluate natural resources, and understand the environment. The B.A. program allows many free electives for background courses in the sciences or liberal arts. The program permits study of traditional geology (with emphasis on the solid earth, the earth's surface, or environmental geology and natural resources), environmental geology (with emphasis on water or urban environmental geology), or an individually tailored program.
