SCIE 145 - Earth Science

This course presents earth and space science in a system approach which emphasizes the categories of the Earth’s various spheres and human activities. This unifying theme falls into the categories of Matter and Energy in the Earth Systems, Earth’s Sources of Energy, Earth’s Processes and Cycles, and The Origin and Evolution of the Universe. Students will review geological, meteorological, oceanographic, and astronomical data, learn about direct and indirect evidence and consider how these might be used to test competing theories about the origin of the stars, plants, and our own solar system.
