In this class, we will learn about the fundamentals of the global climate system, how and why Earth's climate has changed through time, and the tools and methods that paleoclimatologists use to reconstruct past climates and environmental change.
- GEOL-G 567 Medical Geology (3 cr.) P: Senior or graduate level standing and instructor consent. Medical Geology is the study of the interrelationship between earth processes and human health. The spatial distribution and specific processes that can change exposure to certain materials can affect human health. This class will take a detailed look at these scientific issues.
- GEOL-G 583 Isotope Geochemistry (3 cr.) Introduction to the theory of radiogenic and stable isotopes to a variety of subdisciplines in the earth sciences. Topics include geochronology, tracers, mass balance and mixing, hydrology and environmental applications, water-rock interaction, and biogeochemical cycles.
- GEOL-G 585 Environmental Geochemistry (3 cr.) P: GEOL-G 406 or consent of instructor. Aquatic and environmental geochemistry, including freshwater and marine systems, natural and human-induced changes to geochemical systems, and the geochemical record of paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic variations.
- GEOL-G 595 Data Analysis Techniques in Geoscience (3 cr.) P: STAT 30100 and CSCI-N 207, or equivalent. Application of statistical and numerical analysis techniques to geoscience data, including sampling methods, confidence intervals, least squares methods, correlation, time series analysis, and multivariate techniques. Emphasis on using a computer to solve geoscience problems.
- GEOL-G 596 Topics in Applied Environmental Geology (3 cr.) P: Consent of instructor. Application of geologic principles to common environmental problems. Topics covered include waste site assessment, flood hazard analysis and mitigation, slope stability, and hydrogeology. Application of principles to problems pertaining to urban planning, earthquake-resistant design, and waste site/landfill development.
- GEOL-G 621 Modeling Hydrological Systems (3 cr.) P: GEOL-G 430 or GEOL-G 451 and consent of instructor. Introduction to groundwater flow and solute transport modeling. Includes development of equations describing ground water flow and applied ground water/contaminant transport modeling, using a variety of current software packages.
- GEOL-G 635 Soil Geomorphology (3 cr.) P: GEOL-G 415. Application of geomorphic principles in evaluation of weathering and soil formation; systems analysis of soil-landscape models; paleogeomorphology and paleopedology. Lectures and discussion; field and laboratory problems.

Examination of the controls on channel form. Analysis of landform genesis with an emphasis on feature sedimentology and stratigraphy. Application of fluvial geomorphic principles to land management and restoration of riparian ecosystems.
- GEOL-G 645 Carbonate Sedimentology (3 cr.) P: GEOL-G334 or consent of instructor Spring. Course focuses on origin and generation of carbonate grains, description of modern carbonate depositional environments, interpretation of ancient limestone and dolomite sequences, and carbonate diagensis.
- GEOL-G 677 Climate Change and Society (3 cr.) Spring. This course will introduce observations, physical mechanisms and consequences of climate change. Particularly, we will discuss the impacts of climate change on the nexus of food, energy and water systems.
- GEOL-G 686 Advanced Soil Biochemistry (3 cr.) P: GEOL-G406 Fall. This course examines the chemical, biological and physical factors controlling the weathering of minerals and the formation of soils. Topics covered include: biological and chemical properties of soils, soil classification, carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling in relation to food production and environmental quality.
