Practical : 2h/W, 1h/W Invertebrate macropaleontological course includes; Introduction, definitions, zoological nomenclature, how fossils are formed and preserved, explanation of geologic time, how fossils are used in paleoecology and evolution, collecting and preparing fossils, trace fossils, how to identify fossils.Systematic study of invertebrate macrofossil Phyla: Porifera, Cnidaria, Bryozoa, Brachiopoda, Annelida, Mollusca, Echinodermata and Arthropoda.Historical geology: Introduction to the earth’s history, origin of the Earth and its place in the solar system, the most important events (e.g.orogenic, biologic, sedimentation, climatic, etc.) occurred during the geologic history of the earth starting from the Precambrian to the present time.The annual event draws a large crowd of people including over 300 kids. CARTHE has partnered with Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Frost Museum of Science, and the Miami Science Barge for public involvement in research. Recently, researchers and outreach staff from Consortia funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (Go MRI) participated in a variety of events to share science related to the oil spill.

ECOGIG outreach staff and graduate students visited Trip Elementary in Grayson, GA to share the Ocean Discovery Zone with students and families at their 2017 family STEM night. And what better way to do that but in a fun and light-hearted atmosphere where people of all ages gather for a good time.abyssal plain - The ocean floor offshore from the continental margin, usually very flat with a slight slope.accrete - To add terranes (small land masses or pieces of crust) to another, usually larger, land mass. age - A unit of geological time shorter than an epoch, usually lasting several million years.Geological analysis relies mainly on chemistry, physics and mathematics. a'a' lava - basaltic lava characterized by a rough or rubbly surface composed of broken lava blocks called clinker.A-horizon - The uppermost layer of a soil, containing organic material and leached minerals.
