Geology at Kent Stark


Course Description

This course introduces students to principles and concepts of historical geology, including geologic time, sedimentary rocks and processes, plate tectonics, and evolution. These concepts are utilized to develop a geologic history of eastern North America, which is used as a regional case study. The theory of evolution is discussed in detail, followed by a complete history of life, beginning in the Precambrian with single-celled organisms and ending with the appearance of the mammals in the Cenozoic. Mass extinctions, which punctuate the history of life, are placed within the context of evolutionary theory, and the causes for these mass extinctions are investigated. You will discover, among other things, that a meteor did not kill off the dinosaurs! Dr. C. Schweitzer
