Fall 2021 - CH-130-A

 General Info:

The objective of this part of the course is to provide a succinct summary of the important geological events and processes that are part of the evolution of life on earth. The lectures also provide an overview of how the geological timescale was reconstructed using absolute and relative correlation. Finally, fundamental geological principles such as uniformitarianism, lateral continuity, catastrophism will also be discussed.   

Finally, parts of the lecture slides have been put together for the first time for this part of the course. Many thanks to Prof. Rossi for permission to use some slides that he prepared for a previous course. Some slides may contain copyright material for which permission is being requested. Hence, you are kindly requested not to (re)distribute the slides and notes provided during class.

Module Grading:

  • Consists of three courses (CH-130 A, CH-130 B, & CH-130 C)
  • Each course contributes 33% to the final grade
  • This course (CH-130 A) consists of two equal parts (Prof. Bau - Structure and Vikram - Geological History).
  • For this part, the questions will be mostly multiple choice, maybe short answer questions (Hint: Read the above chapters!!)
