Description

This free online course on the fundamentals of soil formation and hillslope evolution will begin by introducing you to the processes involved in soil formation. You will learn about the principles of soil formation along with its application. You will also learn about the key factors to consider for soil formation as well as the different classifications of the soil.

This course will then introduce you to the concept of mass wasting and the fundamentals of mass wasting as well as the classification of mass wasting. Then, you will learn about the effects of liquid limit, plastic limit, along with downslope movement in mass wasting. Furthermore, this course will teach you about the difference between slumps and slides in mass wasting.

Finally, this course will introduce you to how hillslope evolved as well as the concept of parallel retreat in hillslope evolution. This course will equip you with the requisite information about the slope segment as well as the processes involved in the formation of arid zone geomorphology.
