Extreme Geological Events
I want to bring to your attention a free online course called Extreme Geological Events from Cardiff University. The course explores some of the largest floods, tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. We also consider the impact they’ve had and will continue to have on our dynamic planet. Extreme Geological Events begins on 27 January, and the course takes three weeks to complete. It is self-paced and appeals to a wide range of ages and interests. The course is open for enrolment up until 29 March.
Discover how extreme geological events have transformed our planet.
Retrace how Earth formed 4.5 billion years ago and has evolved to become the planet we know today.
On this course, you’ll get an introduction to the geological history of planet Earth, and explore the extreme events that shaped it and created conditions for life.
You’ll learn about the largest floods, tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and explore the impact they have had and will continue to have on our dynamic planet.
Finally, you’ll discuss the likelihood of extreme events happening in the future and how we can deal with the risks and hazards.
