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.

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 11 & 12, students will learn and implement hands-on skills for conducting research 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, this class also includes a mandatory pre-trip evening meeting. Enrollment is limited to 20 students; preference given to freshmen and sophomores; interested students must complete this form: https://goo.gl/forms/p3cEpvGJvjI9EaTm2
