PLEASE READ ATTACHED NEW TRACK DOCUMENT! PLEASE READ TUTORING GAZETTE ENTRY FOR SCIEART303! This course is a continuation of the Earth Sciences Track that began with an introduction (SCIEART101) to the geological terminology, tools and phenomena and some of the fundamental processes that give rise to these phenomena on and in our planet. The purpose of this course is to integrate factual knowledge with practical experience in system analysis, so that the student is well equipped for analyzing, researching and predicting case studies as is expected in the next level course (SCIEART301).

Therefore, in this course, students will learn about several essential analytical tools Earth scientists use to answer pressing contemporary questions about the Earth systems that affect our lives. Mastery of these theoretical approaches to problem solving in the geosciences will be enhanced a series of assignments demonstrating practical and societally relevant examples of their use, and by student preparation of the mandatory course excursion April 19-20 to the Eifel in Germany.

Tools and topics for Geochemistry:y: STELLA and OLI; Redox reactions; Stable isotopes (fractionation); Element cycles; Carbonate chemistry; Weathering; (Paleo) climate

Tools and topics for Geophysics: laws of energy conservation and mass balance; hydrological models; risk assessment.; geothermal energy potential assessment; offshore wind-pumped hydroelectric energy storage; assessment of renewable energy potentials; earthquake hazard assessment.
