GEO 346 Coastal Geology 4.0 Credits

This course will furnish an understanding of the tectonic framework, hydrographic regime, climatic setting, and geological components that determine the morphology and behavior of coastlines. The response of coasts to changes in sea level, sediment supply, and human development will be examined. Fundamental geomorphic processes, such as wave-driven currents and tidal dynamics, will be covered.
