ZTC & LTC Classes

The college strives to ensure that the ZTC and LTC designations are accurate; however, under some circumstances, faculty may have to adjust selection of instructional materials and this can affect course material costs. It may also be necessary to change instructors. Replacement faculty have academic freedom to choose instructional materials regardless of costs and are not obligated to use free course materials selected by an instructor previously assigned to the class.

Physical Geology

Physical geology introduces the processes at work changing the earth today. Within the context of global tectonics, it explores the origins of rocks and minerals and the dynamics of processes, such as igneous activity, seismicity, and crustal deformation, driven by the release of Earth's internal heat. It also examines how air, water, and ice move in response to gravity and energy from the sun, sculpting Earth's surface by eroding, transporting, and depositing weathered rock materials.
