Sufficient UD coursework from any of the approved branches that was not used to satisfy a Tier 3 requirement to total 27 UD credits (this total includes 9-12 credits of Tier 3 work). Understanding the biosynthesis of these marine natural products by a combination of organic chemistry and recombinant biology approaches lays the foundation for the discovery and application of novel biosynthetic enzymes and the rational metabolic engineering of designer molecules.

The many types of precipitation involve a complex mixture of processes such as coalescence, supercooling and supersaturation. [26] Some precipitated water becomes groundwater, and groundwater flow includes phenomena such as percolation, while the conductivity of water makes electrical and electromagnetic methods useful for tracking groundwater flow. Founded in 1926, the Department of Geophysics at the Colorado School of Mines is recognized and respected around the world for its programs in applied geophysical research and education.

If you choose to pursue a career in geology, you may find a role within the energy or mining sectors, advising on the location and extraction of different metals, oils and other natural resources. Here are some examples of why studying space beyond Earth is important: the moon drives the ocean's tidal system, asteroid impacts have repeatedly devastated Earth's inhabitants and energy from the sun drives our weather and climates.

Ecology can be defined as the study of interactions among organisms, and with other organisms, and with abiotic components of their sustained surroundings. Newton publicized his Theory of Universal Gravitation in the 1680s. Students are introduced to the issues that each of these specialists must address so that they may understand how each affects the design and outcome of geophysical investigations. Two important subfields of geology are seismology and vulcanology.
