We will also focus on agents of erosion and be able to identify their different geologic features.
Moreover, this chapter will revisit sedimentary rocks and see how the sediments produced during weathering factor into the formation of the different rocks.
Moreover, minerals and rocks are an important first step in understanding other topics in geology that will be discussed later.
In this topic we will take a look at how the Theory of Plate Tectonics developed and provide concrete evidence that support the theory.
We will also focus on how major extinction periods throughout geologic history have changed the development of life on Earth.
The Physcial Setting: Earth Science can be a challanging course.
In this topic we will focus on long term weather patterns and see how the changing Earth is responsible for creating unique areas of our planet.
Moreover, we will focus in on the Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming and relate it to climate patterns.Dicalite’s natural Diatomaceous Earth is mined and processed at our facility in Basalt, NV.Dicalite’s Basalt mine is one our oldest serving mines, dating back to 1926.In this topic we look at the beginnings of astronomy and see how technology has allowed mankind to gain a better understanding of our Universe.We will focus on the heliocentric model and learn about how Earth fits into the Solar System, Galaxy and Universe.This topic looks at minerals and rocks and helps us to understand the different properties needed to identify them.
