• Welcome to Advanced Geology!

    Advanced Geology is a semester course (.5) designed for college-bound students seeking in-depth experiences in the Earth Sciences.  Emphasis is placed on understanding the physical environment through an increased awareness of the processes of science.

    Areas covered include composition and deformation of the Earth’s crust, mineralology and petrography; sedimentology and stratigraphy; interpretation of topographical maps and aerial photographs; weathering and the development of land forms caused by mass-wasting, streams, groundwater, wind and glaciers; structural geology and reading geologic maps.
