PHYS 115 You Are Here: Earth and Space Sciences

4 credits, Fall and Spring

Starts with Earth and its position in the universe and then turns to features closer to home: the ground we stand on, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. Students will study astronomical, geological, hydrological, and meteorological systems, cycles within those systems, interactions of those systems, their effect on our lives, and our effect on those systems. Course includes weekly lab exercises to explore the development, understanding and enrichment of those concepts.
