EV388A (Version: 2020 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
EV388A PHYSICAL GEOLOGY 2020 2 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.5 (BS=3.5, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course primarily emphasizes learning to identify minerals and rocks and then applying this knowledge to analyze the significant geologic processes that act on and within the Earth. These processes include plate tectonics, rock mechanics, structural geology, geologic mapping, ground and surface water, deep time, and elements of mining and petroleum engineering. Field trips are conducted to illustrate how local geology influenced development and construction in the Hudson Valley. The course is capstoned by an open-ended geologic mapping project which requires the creative application of geology to propose a practical solution to a stated need. Cadets use a geologic exploration simulation to convert given resources into a product containing elements that professional geologists would create.
LESSONS: 27 @ 75 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 13 @ 75 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
One all-day field trip; one term project.

EV388A PHYSICAL GEOLOGY 2019 2 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.5 (BS=2.0, ET=1.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course primarily emphasizes learning to identify minerals and rocks and then applying this knowledge to analyze the significant geologic processes that act on and within the earth. These processes include plate tectonics, rock mechanics, geologic mapping, ground and surface water, and elements of mining and petroleum engineering. Field trips are conducted to illustrate how local geology has influenced development and construction in the Hudson Valley. The course is capstoned by an open-ended engineering problem which requires the creative application of geology to design a practical solution to a stated need. Cadets use a geologic exploration simulation to convert given resources optimally including safety and cost factors.
LESSONS: 30 @ 75 min (2.000 Att/wk) LABS: 12 @ 55 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Two field trips; one design project; compensatory time provided.

EV388A (Version: 1985 2) COURSE DETAILS (ARCHIVED)


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
EV388A PHYSICAL GEOLOGY 1985 2 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.0 (BS=1.0, ET=2.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course primarily emphasizes understanding and interpreting the significant geologic processes that act on and within the earth. Topics studied include the formation and identification of minerals and rocks, plate tectonics, rock structures, geologic mapping, and elements of economic geology. Field trips are conducted to illustrate concepts and processes discussed in class. The course is capstoned by a geologic design that uses an interactive geologic exploration computer simulation. The cadet designs a geologic exploration project and develops a program for remediation of an environmental problem.
LESSONS: 30 @ 55 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 10 @ 110 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Two field trips; one design project; compensatory time provided.
