EAS 58000 - Geodynamics I
Credit Hours: 3.00. This course will provide students with a first order understanding of geophysical processes by developing analytical solutions to a variety of geophysical problems. Topics will include stress and strain, rheology, elasticity and flexure, faulting, and conductive heat transfer. We will develop governing analytical equations based on first order principles, such as the conservation of mass, energy, and momentum, and solve these equations for a number of boundary conditions. The development of these solutions will provide students with the background to understand the basis for more complex numerical solutions of geophysics problems. The course will also serve as a review for differential and integral calculus required to develop an analytical understanding of the natural world. Typically offered every other year in Fall or Spring.
