Description

This free online course on land development and weathering will begin by introducing you to the concept of geomorphology, as well as the theory of uniformitarianism as it relates to geomorphology. You will learn about the historical development of landform processes, as well as the different classifications of landform processes. You will then learn about the different structures of rocks along with how they are formed.

This course will also introduce you to how energy flows in a geomorphic system. Then, this course will teach you about the Davis geomorphic cycle and how it can be applied in landform development. Furthermore, this course will teach you about the different processes involved in geomorphology as well as how to measure geomorphic processes. You will also learn about the hardware model along with its application in geomorphology.

Finally, this course will introduce you to the concept of weathering, as well as the different types of weathering. This course is helpful for learning about the difference between chemical and biological weathering on the one hand, as well as mechanical and physical weathering on the other hand. Begin this course and improve your knowledge about the effects of weathering on land development.
