Course description

Life on Earth, past, present and future, is intrinsically linked to the geological evolution of our planet. ERTH1000 provides a foundation in the key concepts of geology (plate tectonics, geologic time and Earth structure/evolution) before exploring the science behind many of today's big issues: natural hazards, energy & mineral resources, environmental degradation and climate change. This course is recommended for all students undertaking geological, marine, environmental and archaeological science programs, but is appropriate for anyone who wants to know more about the world they live on. Includes half-day field trip - additional fee may be payable.
