Tectonics and climate? Climate and Tectonics? It is obvious that the
major mountain belts on Earth reflect a balance between the two. Beyond
that, almost nothing else is. Understanding the processes at play and
their relative importance remains one of the great challenges in the
Earth Sciences. We will survey the fundamental theory, the observational
techniques, and the settings that speak to this challenge.
The class will mix lectures and readings. Active participation is critical.
