Title Tectonic Geomorphology
Description Lecture, three hours; laboratory, two hours. Enforced requisite: course 1 or 8. Recommended: courses 61, 119, Mathematics 31A. Interactions between tectonic, climate, and surface processes shape landscapes over days to millions of years. Focus on quantifying how tectonic and surface processes interact to govern landscape evolution. How landscapes can provide insights into physical and chemical surface processes, including bedrock weathering, soil formation, hillslope transport, and river and glacial erosion. How tectonics, climate, and underlying lithology may influence those processes in landscapes. P/NP or letter grading.
