 Text: Press and Siever: Understanding the Earth, Second Edition (1998) 

The Fall, 1998 GEOL 1010, Sec 003 will meet at 8AM MWF in the new Benson Earth Sciences Building Rm 180. If you are thinking of signing up for this course check out the syllabus and the links. I have been working on the notes so much is new. I am adopting a new text, Press and Siever for Spring 98, and I still have some work to do on the syllabus and Net Notes

 These NetNotes are intended as a supplement to the text. They are intended to be concise summaries of the main points covered in lecture and only available on the Net. They are copyrighted material, but students are free to download and print them for thier own use. All images except the one to the right here were taken by me.

I am still working on the syllabus for the Fall, so some things may still change, but things are pretty much together. Also the daily lecture notes are actively evolving. I have added a glossary this year, and am working in the links as I prepare each lecture.
