ESS 254 Local Perspectives on the Geological World

Fall-Spring Semesters

This course introduces students to the field of earth science. Students will learn about the fundamental methods and techniques employed in this diverse field, and will use them to conduct a formal study of runoff into a local stream. Students with excellent formal study presentations will have the opportunity to present at meetings of local and/or regional professional organizations. Through this course students develop a deeper conceptual understanding of science by actually doing science: developing basic scientific skills through experimentation, interpreting findings; and presenting results. 1 three-hour laboratory period (ESS231). Two class periods.
