Course Description

A companion course to PSC 105 Lecture, the lab focuses on activities that reinforce and expand understanding of those topics (see description of PSC 105) as a part of Earth Systems Science. Students engage in "hands on" exploration of minerals and rocks, analysis and interpretation of subsurface geologic structures and surface landforms -- derived from map and remote sensing products. Problems involving geohazards and land use issues are also explored. Class meets for one, two-hour session per week -- 1 credit.
