Environmental Geo-sciences I (3 Credits)
Mathematics for Earth Sciences (3 Credits)
This course provides mathematical tools and methods for analyzing and solving problems of change and motion. It introduces two new operations called differentiation and integration which are fundamental concepts in mathematics. Calculus today continues to serve as the principal quantitative language of sciences and technologies.
General Physics (3 Credits)
Environmental Geology and Lab (3 Credits)
This course is to understand natural and man-induced geologic hazards: earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, and land subsidence; environmental issues, disposal and management of solid, chemical, and radioactive waste, acid mine drainage as well as the environmental impact of mineral extraction.
Geophysics and Lab (3 Credits)
Geology on Disasters and GIS Lab (3 Credits)
Mineralogy and Lab (2 Credits)
This course introduces the importance of minerals, the basic building blocks of rocks and the Earth, by providing fundamental knowledge and principles of atomic bonding, structures, symmetry, mineral chemistry, crystal structures, how their atoms are arranged, and how the minerals respond to changes in temperature, pressure, and environment. Hand-specimen identification of minerals using their physical properties is also provided.
Computational Geology (3 Credits)
This course will give you basic mathematical background on the many geophysical and geo-statical issues in geology
Diagnostics of Buried Cultural Heritage and Lab (1 Credit)
Gravity-Geomagnetism and Lab (3 Credits)
Two main geophysical aspects are covered from the background theories to the interpretation of the data through data acquisition and processing.
Structural Geology and Lab (2 Credits)
This course is to provide students with an easily comprehensible discussion of the basics of structural geology, as well as a clear and progressive path from that basic level to an accessible introduction to more advanced material.
Sedimentary Rocks and Lab (3 Credits)
Introduction to Hydrogeology and Lab (3 Credits)
This course provides the fundamental knowledge and tools that are necessary to understand the occurrence and movement of groundwater. Specifically, the emphasis of the course will be on various aquifer tests which are important tools for hydro-geologists to evaluate the hydraulic properties of aquifer systems.
Engineering Geology and Lab (3 Credits)
We learn basic knowledge and techniques on engineering aspects of geological and geophysical sciences. This course covers a wide range of basic engineering areas including physical properties of rocks and soils, stress and strain, slopes, dams, rivers, and wave and seismic exploration. Two lab sessions on measuring the physical properties of rocks are also carried out.
Petrology and Lab (3 Credits)
This course provides the basic knowledge of classification, texture, structure, composition, and field relation of igneous and metamorphic rocks. It also covers basic principles of phase rule and thermodynamics for phase diagrams, generation and evolution of magma, and metamorphic facies.
Field Trip for Geologic Heritage (1 Credit)
Stratigraphy and Lab (3 Credits)
Rock Physics and Lab (3 Credits)
The fundamental purpose of rock physics is to provide quantitative relations between reservoir properties (porosity, saturation, permeability etc) and seismic properties (Vp, Vs, AVO, etc). This class covers seismic velocity, effective medium theory, shaly sands, fluid effect, partial saturation and velocity dispersion. Each topic will be presented with real examples from oil reservoirs.
Geo-tectonics (2 Credits)
This course endeavors to present tectonics and structural geology as a unified subject that is divided only by the scale of the deformational features in the Earth's crust that we choose to consider.
Field Trip Ⅲ (1 Credit)
Environmental Geosciences Ⅱ (3 Credits)
Computer Programming for Earth Sciences (3 Credits)
This is a basic introductory course to Fortran which is the dominant programming language used in science engineering applications, mainly intended for mathematical computations. At the end of the course, students should be able to write basic programs in Fortran, and to be able to start working on existing programs written in modern Fortran.
Resources Geology and Lab (2 Credits)
This course is designed to cover the overview of resource use by humans and to study the role in explaining geological processes and global distributions of the resources.
Diagnostics of Masonry Heritage and Lab (3 Credits)
Historical Geology and Lab (3 Credits)
CADㆍNumerical Analysis and Exercise (2 Credits)
Recently, computing skills are necessary for almost all the fields in science and engineering. In this class, we will cover two computing skills for geologists and geophysicists, computer-aided design (CAD) using AutoCad and basic numerical analyses using MATLAB. The class focuses on hands-on examples and homework.
Optical Crystallography (3 Credits)
This course provides the principles of transmitted polarized microscopes and learns how to use crystal optics and the petro-graphic microscope to identify minerals, textures, and rocks in thin sections of rock.
Planetary geology (3 Credits)
By using images and geological data, when we study the surface and interiors of the Earth-like planets and their satellites in our solar system we will infer how our planet evolves by comparison.
Field Trip I (1 Credit)
Field Geology (3 Credits)
Advances in theory have transformed the formation mapping of any given time into increasingly broader and more interpretive studies. We have much to seek at the outcrop, and the rising costs of field work compel us to recognize key features the first time around.
Paleontology and Lab (2 Credits)
Groundwater Environment and Lab (2 Credits)
This course provides the theoretical and practical background necessary to address groundwater contamination problems. The first portion of the course will emphasize the chemistry of natural waters and the important reactions affecting groundwater chemistry. The second portion of the course will cover the physical and chemical processes affecting solute transport and provide an introduction to the characteristics of common contaminants. The final portion of the course will provide a brief overview of the basics of site characterization procedures and methods of remediating soil and groundwater contaminants.
Ore Deposits and Lab (3 Credits)
This course provides the basic knowledge of geologic occurrence and genesis of economic mineral deposits of metallic and nonmetallic minerals. It deals with texture of ore minerals, characteristics and migration of ore-bearing fluids, depositional process of ores, wall-rock alteration, paragenesis and zoning, geo-thermometry and geo-barometry, and classification of ore deposits.
