Pattern changes between paleochannels and modern channels should be especially interesting. Ideally the subject should perhaps be taught jointly between geography and geology (both disciplines have a lot to offer the field), but this is probably rare to find given the realities of departmental politics. A barrier island is another example of a self-regulating landform. So, the fact that they cover large areas of the Earth defies uniformitarianism and suggests another mechanism.

Ultimately, the titanic, grinding movements of Earth's lithospheric plates generate earthquakes, create volcanoes, and deform large masses of rock into mountains. These "pasty" fluids piled up on each other resulting in a mountain much like today's Mt. But calcareous and made in the water of the bay or in marine water nearby.

The Rock Cycle and Plate Tectonics When the rock cycle was first proposed by James Hutton, very little was actually known about the processes by which one rock was transformed into another; only evidence for the transformation existed. Our program offers both the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelors of Science degrees at the undergraduate level and the Masters of Science and PhD at the graduate level. Although primary focus is on recreation, site has extensive information and links about caves and karst.

Bruce Cornet is a Geologist, Palynologist, and Paleobotanist. Another case of piping within the gravels at the base of a legacy sediment fining upward sequence. Can a mathematical model of stream branching be discerned? It must be dwelt upon and studied, and the study must comprise the slow acquisition of the meaning and spirit of that marvelous scenery which characterizes the Plateau Country, and of which the great chasm is the superlative manifestation.” Other significant geologists refined the story of Grand Canyon’s deep past over the early 20th Century, including Charles Doolittle Walcott, William Morris Davis, and Francois Matthes.

If you want to add a bit about societal relevance, the fact that humans live on the surface of the Earth (not at the core-mantle boundary or the bottom of the ocean) has something to do with why society might be especially interested in the science of geomorphology. Following the dominant biblical beliefs of the time, these deposits had often been ascribed to materials deposited by the Noachian Deluge. At Bryn Mawr, recent coastal research projects have considered 1) modern beach processes, and 2) relationships among landscape ecology, sedimentology and present-day geomorphology.
