Nuclear methods of dating solid earth sciences library
Introduction to partial differential equations, wave equation, Laplace's equation, heat equation, method of characteristics, calculus of variations, series and transform methods, and numerical methods.
Prerequisites: MATH 222 or 225, MATH 246, and ENAS 194, or equivalents.
The knowns and the unknowns of global warming; the paper trail of cutting-edge climate science through time, from the late 1800s to the present.
Recommended preparation: basic calculus and physics. Comprehensive study of the structures, chemistry, and physical properties of minerals.
Methods related to seismology, geophysics, geomorphology, geochemistry, and radiometric dating.
Case studies include nuclear treaty verification, detection of unexploded ordnance and clandestine graves, military history, soil and groundwater contamination, archaeological controversies, art and antiquities fraud, and narcotics provenance.
Earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, landslides, coastal flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, and meteoritic impacts. Intended for non–science majors with strong backgrounds in math and science. For application instructions, visit the course site on Canvas @ Yale.
Examination of fossil and geologic evidence pertaining to the origin, evolution, and history of life on Earth.
For prerequisites specific for each degree and track, see below under Requirements of the Major. The petition should be submitted by the end of the junior year. See “Simultaneous Award of the Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees” under section K, Special Arrangements, in the Academic Regulations.Qualified juniors and seniors are encouraged to enroll in graduate courses, with permission of the instructor and of the directors of graduate and undergraduate studies. degrees are strongly encouraged to gain practical experience in the Earth sciences. degree program Exceptionally able and well-prepared students may complete a course of study leading to the simultaneous award of the B. For more information, see under Physics and Geosciences.Descriptions of graduate courses are available at the office of the director of undergraduate studies. This can be done in two ways: (1) by attending a summer field course at another academic institution, or (2) by participating in summer research opportunities offered by the Department of Geology and Geophysics, by other academic institutions, or by certain government agencies and private industries.
