Geology Goes Hollywood: New online GE class a success!
September 1, 2014
This semester, the department ushered in a new 'born digital' GE course with the fully online lecture
and lab, GEOL 107. Hooked in by watching popular Hollywood disaster movies, students
constructed a dinosaur based on a small sampling of bones, played the role of residents in Mammoth
Lakes in the middle of a volcanic crisis, designed their own earthquake early warning network, and
debated the risks and rewards of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas. Course design by Drs. Schwartz
and d'Alessio was supported by the CSU Chancellor's office, and you can read their report on
the inaugural semester of the course here. Read more

also witnessed some great exposures of the geologic strata on the south side of Santa Cruz Island.
