and minerals), gradation (erosion and
deposition), diastrophism (earth
movements and mountain building),
volcanism and earth resources.

Environmental Geology - 3323
A study of geological processes that
affect and are affected by human
activities; emphasizing earth cycles,

resources, geology and human health;
also including mineral resources,
natural hazards, and land use and
planning. Prerequisite: GEOL 1303.
Inorganic Geochemistry - 5405
The application of chemical principles
