Description
GEOMORPHOLOGY: DYNAMIC EVOLUTION OF EARTH'S SURFACE
This course aims to introduce students to the geomorphologic processes that shape the surface of Earth, the physical mechanisms by which they operate, and the landforms they create. It will combine qualitative and quantitative descriptions of land-shaping processes such as river erosion, glaciers motion, and landslides. The course builds on in class discussions and assignments to train students in applying basic physical and mathematical tools to explore geomorphological processes.
