EARS 67 Environmental Geomechanics
The study of our Earth environment requires an understanding of the physical processes within and at the surface of the Earth. This course explores the physics of key Earth surface processes, including volcanic eruptions, landslides and debris flows, and turbulent flows in rivers and the sea. Advanced quantitative concepts are developed through applications in geomorphology, sedimentology, oceanography, and volcanology. Format: faculty lectures, challenging weekly problem sets, independent project, final exam.
