Earth Science
This course will be separated into two major units: one on meteorology and one on geology. In meteorology, the focus will be on the structure and composition of the atmosphere as well as how gases cycle within our atmosphere. The production of energy from the sun and stars will be related to the various types of electromagnetic radiation. The processes of evaporation and condensation as they pertain to the hydrologic cycle and the how these processes interact with the oceans will also be discussed. In geology, the use of topographic maps will be studied. In addition, plate tectonics and the composition of the earth, rocks and minerals, and earth history will be explored.
