Mass Wasting is a course handout designed to initiate discussion on the factors involved in mass wasting (eg. creep, solifluction, falls, slides, and flows) and the methods used to prevent mass wasting. Definitions are given for key terms such as angle of repose and lahars. Photographs illustrate the effects of rockslides and slumps. Links are provided to the online Physical Geology resources at Georgia ... Full description.

This is a course handout to accompany the discussion of sedimentary depositional environments. Facies are defined as all of the characteristics of a particular rock unit. The effects of transgressions and regressions on depositional environments are discussed with reference to fluctuations in sea level. These effects are then related to Walther's Law. Diagrams display facies change, and transgressive ... Full description.

The purpose of the handout is to identify the three major types of soils: pedalfer, pedocal, and laterite, and to understand the soil profile. This is accomplished with brief descriptions of the soil horizons and the designation of common elements to pedalfers, pedocals, and laterite soils. The handout is concluded with a discussion of soil erosion. Links are provided to the online Physical Geology ... Full description.
