Courses Taught at UVic ><



EOS 330, Paleobiology. Processes and patterns in the evolution of life through time: extinction, evolution and diversification as recognized from the fossil record. Major events in the history of life. The relationship of biotas to depositional systems: paleoecology, biostratigraphy and paleobiogeography. The major groups of microfossils and invertebrates will be studied with emphasis on their applications in Earth Sciences. Laboratories and field trips will provide illustrative fossil examples.


EOS 313, Introductory Geological Oceanography. An introduction to the geological processes that shape the ocean basins, oceanic plate creation and structure, hydrothermal circulation at mid-ocean ridges, bathymetry, ocean islands, different types of ocean margins, ocean sediments, the sedimentary record of past ocean circulation, coastal geology.


EOS 120, The Dynamic Earth. Internal and external processes that shape the Earth and its landscapes. Nature of tectonic forces, earthquakes, volcanoes, rocks and minerals, and mountain building. Processes of erosion, sediment transport and deposition, and glaciation. Global water cycle and hydrological processes. Geologic record of past environmental change and its impact on life. Natural resources, natural hazards, and sustainability.


EOS 360, The Evolution of Life Through Time. This course is an introduction to the history of the Earth and its life over the last 4 billion years. The primary goal of this course is to introduce students to the complexity of Earth as a physical / biological system. Throughout the course we will review the major events in the history of life beginning with the oldest known fossils and continuing until the present day.


EOS 525, Research Frontiers in Earth and Ocean Science. This interdisciplinary Earth and Ocean Sciences course examines, in detail, global topics that are current, significant and which require input and integration across diverse disciplines. The specific topics change annually and the subject is team-taught by several SEOS/UVic faculty members.
