This is the web page for GEOG112- Earth System Science with Dr. Jim Durbin for the Spring 2015 semester

The two final assignments are online here.  The first one is the Virtual River Discharge exercise, and the second is the Plate tectonics map.

Both are due on Monday, April 27, 2015. 

The Virtual River exercise is a certificate that must be printed out and turned in with your name and the date completed on it in order to receive credit for it. 

The Plate tectonics exercise is a PDF file that will also be completed as a hard copy.  the lecture slides for plate tectonics should be very helpful in completing this exercise. 

The final study aid is now online as well.

The final exam for the course is scheduled to take place on Monday, May 4, 2015 from 10 am to 12:00 noon

Earth Systems Science is a Physical Geography course and is therefore not like cultural geography.
It has content similar to physical geology, but includes a number of topics not taught in most
physical geology courses such as weather systems, climatology, astronomy, and oceanography!
