Courses I Teach

Spring 2008 semester I am teaching :

GLS351— ECONOMIC GEOLOGY

GLS100— PHYSICAL GEOLOGY

             If you are enrolled in GLS351 sign on to WebCT— it will all be there: notes, assignments, announcements.

 

I regularly teach three upper division geology courses:

              GLS341 STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY—4 cr

In this course we study the dynamic forces which deform the earth’s crust as well as the results of this deformation, from mountain ranges such as the Himalayas and the Rockies to the San Andreas fault system on our west coast.   

              GLS380 ENVIRONMENTAL GEOPHYSICS—4 cr

 This course is an introduction to using geophysical methods to helping solve environmental problems. We spend a lot of time outdoors using advanced equipment to ‘see’  beneath the surface.

              GLS485 FIELD METHODS—total of 6 crs.

We alternate locations each year for this course—southern Nevada, and southwestern Montana, each location for 3 crs. Most of the work is done at Salem State but we spend 1-3 weeks, in the field, at each location looking at and mapping rocks and geological structures. I teach the Montana section.

IN ADDITION, I TEACH:

GLS342 PLATE TECTONICS
