GEO-410L Geomorphology Laboratory

The lab component of this course investigates the interactions between surface processes and landforms through field measurements and laboratory analysis. Methods of geomorphological analysis, topographic map interpretation, and aerial photo interpretation are used to further develop topics covered in lecture: weathering, slope processes, soil erosion, fluvial and glacial processes and landforms, mountain building, rates of landscape change, and megafloods. Analyses of surface processes and landforms focus on field examples within Idaho and the Pacific Northwest. Corequsite: GEO-410
