Water flow across a diverse geological framework shapes the Earth’s surface. The process of surface water flow and the earth’s response to this flow are investigated across three physiographic provinces, including the Blue Ridge, Piedmont, Coastal Plains/Continental Shelf. Participants will consider processes and responses such as erosion, sediment transport, and formation of associated depositional environments. Understand the importance of healthy natural water systems and the connection between watersheds and groundwater.

Participants in the online class may register for a separate field experience offered on Friday, June 10 or Saturday, June 11. (Registration link provided in the course site on Schoology.)
