EARTH 1A: Know Your Planet: Research Frontiers

Planet Earth is our only home and so it is critical that we understand how it works, from large-scale geologic processes that shape our continents, to biological processes that produce the air we breathe, to the origins of the energy sources we rely on, to the impacts of the human societies we have created. This course provides an introduction to the cutting edge research of Stanford Earth faculty, who are leading the effort to ask and answers these critical questions about our planet. May be repeated for credit.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit

EARTH 42: Landscapes and Tectonics of the San Francisco Bay Area (GEOLSCI 42)

Active faulting and erosion in the Bay Area, and its effects upon landscapes. Earth science concepts and skills through investigation of the valley, mountain, and coastal areas around Stanford. Faulting associated with the San Andreas Fault, coastal processes along the San Mateo coast, uplift of the mountains by plate tectonic processes, and landsliding in urban and mountainous areas. Field excursions; student projects.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: WAY-AQR, WAY-SMA

EARTH 117: Earth Sciences of the Hawaiian Islands (EARTHSYS 117, ESS 117)

Progression from volcanic processes through rock weathering and soil-ecosystem development to landscape evolution. The course starts with an investigation of volcanic processes, including the volcano structure, origin of magmas, physical-chemical factors of eruptions. Factors controlling rock weathering and soil development, including depth and nutrient levels impacting plant ecosystems, are explored next. Geomorphic processes of landscape evolution including erosion rates, tectonic/volcanic activity, and hillslope stability conclude the course. Methods for monitoring and predicting eruptions, defining spatial changes in landform, landform stability, soil production rates, and measuring biogeochemical processes are covered throughout the course. This course is restricted to students accepted into the Earth Systems of Hawaii Program.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA

EARTH 163H: Big Earth Hackathon Water Challenge (CEE 163H, GEOLSCI 163H)

Participate in Stanford's inaugural Big Earth Hackathon Water Challenge by finding an innovative solution to a planetary water problem. Students are tasked to come up with a solution to a water related problem over a seven week period. Projects can be software, hardware, or policy related solutions to important water issues. Students (working individually or in teams of 2-4) are encouraged to pursue a problem of their own interest, but will be provided several opportunities to hear of projects ideas from faculty and industry leaders.
