Introduction to Earth surface environments, the processes that shape them, how humans affect them and are affected by them. Weekend field trips examine mountains, rivers, deltas/estuaries, beaches, and environments beyond. Focus on linkages between these environments to illustrate coupling between landscapes and seascapes.

ESS 426: Fluvial Geomorphology
ESS 426 Autumn 2012
Hydraulic and morphological characteristics of streams and valley floors. Landscape evolution by stream erosion and deposition. Field exercises emphasize quantitative analysis of fluvial processes, channel forms, acquisition of various skills, such as mapping, topographic surveying, report writing. Prerequisite: either ESS 311, ESS 326, GEOL 392, or GEOL 411.
ESS 427: Hillslope GeomorphologyESS427 Spring 2013
Characteristics of bedrock and soil-mantled hillslopes, and the processes that control their evolution in diverse climates. Lectures will cover theoretical, laboratory, and field aspects of hillslope evolution by soil creep, slope failure, and water erosion. The class will provide an introduction to recent advances in this discipline and it will feature a number of presentations by guest experts. Laboratory and field exercises emphasize quantitative analysis of hillslope processes and forms, and the acquisition of various skills, including mapping, topographic surveying, and report writing.
