Detailed exploration of the geology of a region of North America, including a field trip to the area during the entirety of Spring Break. Before the trip, the class will broadly examine the geology of the area, including landforms, surficial processes, crustal evolution, tectonic settling, and petrology. Students will choose a geologic subject that can be visited as part of the trip itinerary and present their project on location. Students will learn how interrelated processes in geology create the landscape that we view today.
