How does the Earth work? Why are the Rocky Mountains in the western U.S.? Why is Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park? Could there be volcanoes on the east coast? Could there be tsunamis? The answers to those questions and more are answered in this course which takes a web-enhanced, project-oriented approach to the study of the Earth. Open only to Honors students or students with at least a GPA of 3.5, not open to students who have received credit for GLS100. Three lecture hours and two hours of laboratory per week.
