GEOL 114: Environmental Geology Laboratory SECTION 3, FALL 2016 Laboratory Instructor: Blake Smith Email: email@example.com Office hours: By Appointment Required Laboratory Manual: Foley, D., McKenzie, G. D., Utgard, R. O., rd., 2009, Investigations in Environmental Geology (3 edition): Pearson, 312 p. (ISBN13: 9780131420649) Laboratory Classroom: 122 Brevard Course Description The Environmental Geology Laboratory is designed as an introduction to geologic materials and geologic processes. The goal of this course is to provide students pursuing degrees in programs other than science and engineering with a basic understanding of the fundamentals of the science of environmental geology and geologic hazards. Outcomes and Objectives By the end of the semester, students who successfully complete GEOL 114 should: Have the skills to infer geologic results by analysis of maps, samples, photos, measuring, experimenting, classifying, charting, graphing, and calculations. Be able to identify rock and mineral hand samples on the basis of their properties using the Scientific Method and geologic fundamentals. Be able to locate and identify features on topographic maps. Be able to construct a basic topographic map. Be able to identify hazards associated with geologic events. Laboratory Class Expectations and Requirements Bring a pencil, calculator and your lab book to all classes. o CELL PHONES and ELECTRONIC DEVICES ARE NOT ALLOWED. Please silence and place them in your pocket, backpack or purse before lab. If you are observed using any electronic device, you will be asked to leave lab and will not be allowed to return until you have met with the Instructor of Record (Cathy Grace). You must attend all lab meetings to succeed in this course. If you do not attend class during the first two weeks of the semester, you will be deenrolled by the 9/16/2016 University. This is a university policy and your instructor does not have the authority to make any exceptions to this rule. Bring your own copy of the required text to lab each week. You will not be able to complete your assignments without it. Read the appropriate material in the lab manual BEFORE each class and anticipate a short quiz covering the assigned reading. If you come to lab after the quiz has been given, you will not have the opportunity to make it up. Complete the assignment during the class and submit the completed assignment at the end of the class period. Except in extenuating circumstances (e.g., illness, funerals, etc.), makeup exams and labs will not be given. With proper notification BEFORE an expected absence, arrangements can be made. You may contact me through email, phone, mailbox, and office hours. If you miss a makeup exam or lab, you will be given a zero. This class is administered through the School of Engineering and all students taking this class must adhere to the School of Engineering Honor Code. Those found to be in violation (i.e., cheating) will be subject to review and issued the appropriate punishment decided by the Instructor of Record or referred to the Engineering Honor Council. While in class, students are expected to respect others and turn off all cell phones, pagers, etc. If your cell phone rings or beeps during class, you will be asked to leave. Many students have handled the minerals, rocks, and maps you are using and students may have placed dilute acid on some samples. Hand washing after handling these materials is recommended.
