Everywhere you are, you are subject to the powerful and awesome powers of the Earth.  This course is an introduction to these earth processes and how they affect you. Come learn about how the earth was formed, how and where earthquakes occur, how rocks are formed and what they tell us about the Earth. See how mountains are formed and how rivers flow. Learn about sources of energy on earth and how they are harvested and their impacts. We will relate all earth processes back to our local geology in Santa Barbara and in California, a very unique geologic setting. Join us!
