Geology at Kent Stark

Dr. Schweitzer's Geology Pages at Kent State University at Stark



This course provides an introduction to all aspects of the earth’s oceans, including the chemical and physical properties of sea water; the formation and effects of waves, tides, and currents; plate tectonics; and marine biology. The proximity of Lake Erie is fortunate as the Lake provides a natural laboratory and model for many oceanographic principles and processes. The final section of the course, marine biology, ties together all of the principles of the course in a fascinating overview of marine life. Dr. C. Schweitzer
