Course description

Geology of California explores how the state's diverse landscapes have been shaped by geologic processes operating along an ancient passive plate margin and an active modern one. The course also examines the roles that these processes have played in producing California's mineral resources and creating the geologic hazards that confront so many of the state's citizens today.
