GEO 145 Geology of New York State

Much of earth history can be explored by the study of New York State geology. The course explores - among other things - the evolution of life in vast marine basins, the uplift of lofty mountains during the Appalachian Orogeny, followed by the more recent advance of Pleistocene ice sheets that covered the state until about 10,000 years ago. Students should come away with a better understanding and appreciation for the rich geological history of their home state.
