Properties and processes affecting the evolution and behavior of the solid Earth. This course will focus on the geophysical processes that build mountains and ocean basins, drive plate tectonics, and otherwise lead to a dynamic planet. Topics include heat flow and mantle circulation, earthquakes and seismic waves, gravity, Earth's magnetic field, and flow of glaciers and ice sheets. Prerequisites: any EESC 1000 or 2000 level course, MATH V1101 (Calculus I), PHYS V1201 (General Physics I), or equivalent preparation; concurrent enrollment in PHYS V1201 is acceptable with permission of the instructor.
