Research Themes
New scientific opportunities have grown from recent developments in physics and geology.
Geology was for a long time mainly a descriptive science in the sense that only states, not processes, could be described in a quantitative way. Following the traditions of historical geology, processes were mainly regarded as a sequence of states. Thermodynamics was introduced to geology by Victor Goldschmidt, 90 years ago, [1] to describe equilibrium states in rocks. In many respects Goldschmidt's work nucleated a new science discipline - Geochemistry. Although natural geological systems are never strictly in equilibrium, the concepts of this new quantitative science were frequently, and often successfully, applied to natural mineral assemblages to gain insights into the conditions of formation of a given rock type, and the distribution of different rock types in the Earth.
PGP will focus on the Earth's patterns and processes on all scales from plate tectonics to pressure solution. This image shows erosional patterns from the Western Himalayas. View the picture in

3. Physical Geology Of Jamestown RI
Reviews the geological processes that shaped Jamestown RI and the Narragansett Bay area; starting with the emergence of Avalonia about 565 million years ago, continuing through continental collisions, glacial modifications to the land and postglacial increases in sea level.
G eological H istory of J amestown, R hode I sland
Narraganset Bay offers many reminders that it was carved by glacial ice The story of the land that has become Jamestown Starting at the earliest point in time that experts have been able to identify the location of the basement rocks under Jamestown and all of Rhode Isand, this narrative traces the journey of that land across oceans and through continental collisions to the relatively recent past, when Rhode Island was sculpted by glacial action and Narragansett Bay was created by rising seas. Quite literally, Jamestown's land has been at the leading edge of much of the world's history.
565 Million Years of Geological History
A Very Brief Summary
All of Rhode Island was part of a micro-continent called Avalonia , which formed south of the equator, off of the coasts of both Africa and South America, when they were joined as part of a larger continent, more than 565 million years ago.

I have been "in the process" as they say in the business, of rewriting my first textbook, "Physical Processes in Geology" as a second edition. The first edition was published in 1970, and the book was reprinted with emendations (and deletions) in the early 1980's, but it has been out of print for at least 15 years. I wanted to put out the second edition in 2000, but it looks as though I have missed the 30-year anniversary. Oh well,..... My plan is to make drafts of the various chapters for the new edition available here on the web site. You are welcome to use them as you see fit. I would, though, appreciate criticisms and comments as well as corrections, so that I can improve the manuscripts. Of course, the manuscripts will be edited by a professional, so do not worry too much about the way I smash the mother tongue. The editors will probably also remove most of my slanderous comments about the research efforts of my distinguished peers, so don't pay attention to them either. I'm probably just getting a few things off my chest that have been riding heavily for 20 to 40 years! Let us continue, here, with a draft of a preface to the new text.

Mississippi Delta and Mobile Bay Sediment Load
Geological Processes:
Suspended matter concentrations and patterns change very rapidly as tides, winds, and river discharge fluctuate. This strong variability complicates interpretation of remotely sensed information regarding estuarine circulation, transport and distribution of river discharge, and mixing processes. The frequent sampling required, however, to resolve tidal effects cannot be provided by data from polar-orbiting spacecraft. These data must be supplemented with more frequent acquisitions from aircraft, buoys, drifters, and ships. Satellite sensors can, however, provide global access to remote areas where coastal processes can be imaged synoptically. Sediment load in the water greatly regulates the primary production of seagrasses and phytoplankton by strongly affecting light availability within the water column. Estimates of the diffuse attenuation coefficient K and its correlation to the reflectance of the water allow some prediction to be made of the light field within a sediment-loaded environment. Suspended sediments may also act as "tracers" (streak lines) that reveal circulation patterns in areas where sea-surface temperature and/or chlorophyll pigment concentration may not be readily apparent or recoverable.

10. Standard 7 - The Physical Processes That Shape The Pattern Of Earth's Surface
NIGERIA BACKGROUND INFORMATION The physical processes That Shape the Pattern of Earth's Surface One of the most critical processes that shapes the earth's surface is climate. one cannot understand constructive geological processes without understanding destructive processes simultaneously.
Standard 7 The Physical Processes That Shape
the Pattern of Earth's Surface Climatic Processes
One of the most critical processes that shapes the earth's surface is climate. In fact, climate variation is one of the main reasons why different parts of the world have such different physical and human characteristics. In this section, we will look at some of the basic climatic processes in Nigeria. These are some of the processes that make Nigeria distinct from places like Japan, Canada, or even South Africa. While Nigeria is a relatively well-watered country by global standards, the strongly seasonal nature of precipitation has important consequences for other physical and human processes. Vegetation is one phenomenon that is closely correlated with the seasonality and the amount of annual precipitation. Nigeria's vegetation is discussed in a later section. The spatio-temporal pattern of rainfall also has important consequences for humans. Farming patterns, drinking water availability, and human settlement are all influenced by the country's pattern of rainfall. An important point to remember about climate is that it is not static. Evidence for this is available from the West African Sahel. While many have been quick to blame farmers and herders for desertification, "there are those who believe that the climate of tropical Africa is changing and becoming drier, leading for example to the drought periods of the last three decades." Indeed, "between 1968 and 1989 in the Sahelian countries of West Africa, every annual rainfall total was below 'normal', if indeed 'normal' can be defined." It is not known what effect these climatic changes may have on humans and other physical systems in the future.

Oceanography is a multidisciplinary environmental science with the oceans as its focus. Oceanographers apply the principles of the basic sciences in an integrated approach to understanding the biological, chemical, geological, and physical features and processes of the oceans. Modern oceanography is concerned with the interactions among these processes within the ocean but also with their interactions in global scale processes with the solid earth, the terrestrial biosphere and the atmosphere. Graduate study is available within the College in both the discipline-based and more interdisciplinary areas of Oceanography. The graduate program in Oceanography is organized around the following fields, each represented by a group of faculty.
Biological Oceanography
Biological Oceanography analyzes the interactions of marine microbes, plants and animals with each other and with chemical, physical and geological processes in the sea. Biological oceanography also encompasses study of the distribution, abundance and production of marine organisms in the open ocean, coastal zone, and estuaries, both in the water column and on the sea floor.

"We know with increasing certainty from geologic biomarkers, fossils, and molecular phylogenies that the organisms most likely responsible for this rise, the ubiquitous cyanobacteria or their ancestors, were surely present at least half a million years prior to the rise. So why the lag?"
The rise of oxygen is a great science question. It is unique because there are as many theories that postulate the event as dominated by physical processes as there are ones that predict it was a biologically mediated phenomenon. This session will bring oceanographers, genome analysts, and geoscientists with their competing theories, together in one venue with the hopes that a more substantive and accurate picture of what may have actually occurred can be brought to the fore.
The newest discoveries are coming from papers that are multidisciplinary in nature:
David Catling , from the Space Science Division of the NASA Ames Research Center and the SETI Institute, will build on the idea that the Archean atmosphere was dominated by methane as the primary greenhouse gas, but expands it to include an explanation for the oxidation of Earth. He postulates that the kinetic effects of oxygen and methane are reversed from today; in effect hydrogen escape to space was inescapable and oxygenation of the atmosphere was irreversible.

U.S. Geological Survey Mission Statement
Mission of the U.S. Geological Survey is to serve the Nation by providing reliable scientific information to:
Describe and understand the Earth;
Minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters;
Manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and
Enhance and protect our quality of life.
Created by an act of Congress in 1879, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has evolved over the ensuing 120 years, matching its talent and knowledge to the progress of science and technology. Today it stands as the sole science agency for the Department of the Interior. It is sought by thousands of partners and customers for its natural science expertise and its vast earth and biological data holdings. The USGS serves the Nation as an independent fact-finding agency that collects, monitors, analyzes, and provides scientific understanding about natural resource conditions, issues and problems. The value of the USGS to the Nation rests on its ability to carry out studies on a national scale and to sustain long-term monitoring and assessment of natural resources. Because it has no regulatory or management mandate, the USGS provides impartial science that serves the needs of our changing world. The diversity of scientific expertise enables the USGS to carry out large-scale, multi-disciplinary investigations that build the base of knowledge about the Earth. In turn, decision makers at all levels of government citizens in all walks of life have the information tools they need to address pressing societal issues.
