Engineering Geology: Surficial Materials and Processes
As the human population continues to grow, the environment and earth's resources become more important. This course will concentrate on the occurrence and distribution of earth’s surficial materials and their engineering and environmental properties. The engineering classification, testing, and use of the earth materials will be emphasized. The geohazards of surficial processes will also be studied in the context of geologic history and the planning and use of the geologic environment.
