EARTH 1C: Know Your Planet: Science Outside

One of the most important ways to learn about the world is to go out and explore it. Over the course of two day-long field trips during the weekend of May 5 & 6, students will learn and implement hands-on skills for conducting research "in the field," that is, outdoors in the natural environment. No previous field-work experience necessary. By focusing on the local geology, geomorphology, soils, ecology, and marine biology surrounding the Stanford campus, we will use careful observation, standard methods for data collecting, and analytical tools to answer fundamental questions about earth and ecosystem function. Along the way, we will also practice basic skills, from hiking to critical thinking, essential for conducting science outside of the controlled environment of the lab. This class is all about learning by doing, so be prepared to get your hands dirty and your feet wet while enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. In addition to the field weekend (May 5 & 6), this class also include more »
