This course is designed to introduce you to some of the basic tools and principles used in paleoceanography. We will also focus on abrupt changes in the ocean-climate system and consider the evidence used to interpret what triggered these changes and how the system responded to various forcing factors and the feedbacks involved.
Application of seismic, gravity, magnetic, and electrical methods used in geophysical exploration. Field techniques, data compilation, and basic interpretations used to support shallow subsurface studies and environmental or hydrologic programs. Lectures, laboratory and field problems.
Course description not available at this time.
Methods used in reconstructing climate before the period of instrumental records and their application in understanding late Quaternary climatic fluctuations. Topics include dating methods, ice core studies, palynology, ocean core studies, terrestrial geological and biological studies, dendroclimatology, and historical climatology. Prerequisites: Geo-Sci 354 or permission of instructor.

Advanced undergraduate and graduate course presents a basic study in seismology and the utilization of seismic waves for the study of Earth's interior. It introduces techniques necessary for understanding of elastic wave propagation in layered media. Students are expected to have taken Intro Geoscience classes and have good background in basic physics and mathematics.
