Introduction to Geology Wednesdays 13.30 2017/18

Over the last two hundred years, the collection of fossil curiosities developed into Geology, the scientific study of the Earth. But even a little basic knowledge can help us make more sense of the dynamic planet we live on.

This course will cover the basics of; how different rock types are formed; identification of rocks, minerals and fossils using clues in hand specimens; and how to read a geological map. We shall also investigate some interesting geological concepts and controversies, such as neptunism versus plutonism, and the age of the Earth and plate tectonics, all milestones in the journey towards understanding how the Earth works.
