This course explores the interaction of earth materials, processes, and time that shaped New England and Maine. It focuses on the specific types of minerals, rocks, and the physical and chemical means that molded the landscape and provided our geological resources. Special emphasis is given to the bedrock foundation and surficial constituents and the river, glacial, and wave actions that have been the prime movers in determining what we see today. No prior geology is required.
