PHSC 116. Historical Geology
General principles and the origin of the earth. Attention will be directed primarily to the nature of physical conditions and the record of life during the geologic history of the continent of North America. Some treatment will be given to the areas of Europe, because most major divisions of the rock succession were first recognized and defined there. Students having physical geology as an introductory course will be able to tie into a time sequence many previously unassociated facts in relation to the age of the Earth.
