Ocean Science Areas - The Last Billion Years OCEA 3004   The Last Billion Years
This course examines major events in Earth history. The geological and geochemical evidence will be described, and the hypothesized causes of the events will be examined. The goal of this course is to develop an understanding of the functioning of the earth/ocean/atmosphere system, how it has reacted to perturbations in the past and how it will react to current perturbations in the future.
