Geol 202: The Earth's Interior
This beginning geophysics course is designed for geology majors. It provides a relatively rigorous and homework-intensive overview of the structure and evolution of the Earth and terrestrial planets, at a level higher than a descriptive geology class, but lower than the standard introduction to geophysics for seniors or first year graduate students. Demonstrations are presented with links to a variety of supplemental resources, including virtual field trips and biographies of famous scientists who contributed to understanding these topics.
