Environmental Geology - ENV 120
I teach Davidson's foundational geology course, Environmental Geology, as a blend between traditional Physical Geology and Environmental Geology. Topics include the scientific method, sustainability, minerals, the rock cycle, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanism, fluvial systems, coastal processes, mass wasting, soils, climate, glaciers, deserts, groundwater, and mineral resources. I will be teaching this again in the spring of 2012. The current textbook is Reichard's Environmental Geology.
Surface Geology and Landforms - ENV 230
I also teach Surface Geology and Landforms which is a field based class focusing on geomorphology. The class is taught without a lab and instead meets once a week for a lab length period. This provides a lot of flexibility for the class to switch between lecture and going out in the field. A class long project will be focuses on a trip to the Blue Ridge of western North Carolina. While there is no prerequisite, it is recommended that students take Environmental Geology as at least a co-requisite. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions.
Environmental Science - ENV 201
One of the three core courses within the Environmental Studies major, environmental science examines basic interdisiplinary concepts in earth science, chemistry, physics, and biology/ecology. The interdisiplinary nature of the class means that it is commonly team taught.
Regional Geology - ENV 325
Coming Spring 2013...
