GEO 114 - Investigations in Iowa Geology (1)

Earthquakes, volcanoes, oceans, meteorite impacts, glaciers… in Iowa? Geology may not be the first thing you think of when you think about Iowa, but the geology of Iowa records valuable information about the geological formation and evolution of the Earth. Geologists are not only historians; however, but also detectives who use rocks, minerals, fossils, landforms, and Earth processes to piece together the physical history of the Earth. Because geology is active, the geology of Iowa is still changing today. This field- and laboratory-based course is designed to show how you can use your own observations and experimental data to interpret the changing Earth around you. Not open to students previously enrolled in GEO 111 .
