Understanding the Geology of Northern Wisconsin

March 3 – April 7, 2015

Identify and understand Earth materials, understand how we use geologic materials, how tectonic forces change rocks, and how the Earth’s surface is sculpted by water and surface processes. Students will also learn to compile stories from Earth’s past by deciphering rock records, to discern geologic features in maps and to know the major geologic events recorded in the rocks of Northern Wisconsin. All materials for the weekly readings and discussions will be provided. Students will be required to have or purchase a magnifying lens, available from the instructor for $16.
