Prerequisite: CORE 160  or one lab science or field science course. Clues to over one billion years of Earth history can be found in rocks and sediments in Virginia, recording ancient shorelines, the collision of continents, and tracks of long-extinct dinosaurs. Students in this course will decipher this history by the careful examination of field evidence. Class meetings take place primarily outdoors at geological sites around the state. On most days, students will leave early in the morning and travel off campus to informative geological sites, returning in the late afternoon. Offered alternate years. This course will include extensive outdoor fieldwork and some hiking. At least one required overnight field trip. V.8ab
