EAS-G 559: EARTH SURFACE PROCESSES (3 - 4 credits)


In this course, we will learn how the movement of rock and sediment shapes mountains, drainage basins, hillslopes, rivers, and coastlines. Lectures are based on conservation of mass and momentum, Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid mechanics, sediment transport, and tectonics. We will apply these concepts in the field and through modeling.
