This course is designed to acquire knowledge about the formation of various landforms on the surface of the earth. This will help the students to understand the processes by which the various types of structures developed on the earth's surface due to erosional and depositional processes. In addition, it is critical that students learn to think like a scientist and to apply the scientific method in their coursework and in their lives. It helps to know the geologic time scale and place important geologic events in a temporal framework.


Learning Outcomes:

  1. This course is designed to acquire knowledge about the landforms due to erosion and depositional processes.
  2. This will help the students to understand the rocks, rock forming-process, geological time, fossils and tectonics.
