Students explore the co-evolution of Earth's environment and life from ~2 billion years ago to 500 million years ago by examining rocks from several field location around the world. This course is designed to give students an introductory understanding of Earth history and geology through a series of lectures, virtual field trips, and interviews with experienced geologists. Virtual field sites include the early-mid Proterozoic of Minnesota, and the Neoproterozoic and early Phanerozoic of Svalbard (Norway) and the Death Valley region (eastern California).
This is a great course! I was constantly surprised by the amount of information Dr Bergmann could find in the structure and composition of rocks. Videos include lectures with a clear board, interviews, and field expeditions. Worthwhile auditing even if the instructor-led session is not currently available.
