GEOS 140 - Physical Geography

This course is a survey of the physical and environmental topics of geography, including the methods used to study them. The Earth as a system and the subsystems of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere constitute the major units of study. Students will acquire basic terminology that they will use to explain the earth, the atmosphere, the landscape, and the processes that occur on earth to change the landscape. Topics may include mapping with topographic maps and remote sensing; development and structure of the atmosphere; weather; water resources; climate; rock formation; mountain building; chemical and physical weathering; mass movement; soil formation; erosion, transportation and deposition by running water, wind, ice, currents, waves and tides; and the foundation that these processes build for the biosphere on earth. 3 hrs. lecture/wk.

Clinic Courses (CLI) provide practical application and are offered on or off campus. Instructors supervise/direct student in a simulated or on-site setting.
Face-to-Face Courses (F2F) take place in a classroom. Based on JCCC's Statement of General Education. Students in all classes, including face-to-face classes, are expected to use technology appropriate to the course content and as needed to access web-based course materials. Face-to-face classes typically require access to computer equipment (either at home or in college labs provided for student use) and computing skills utilizing standard office, business and web browsing applications.
Hybrid Courses (HYB) combine face-to-face classroom instruction and the convenience of online web-based learning, resulting in a reduction of the amount of time spent in the face-to-face classroom and a significant increase of time spent studying online materials. Students registered in hybrid courses must attend class meetings as listed in the JCCC Schedule of Classes.
Internships (INT) provide experience to students for on-the-job training with cooperating businesses, agencies, and organizations. The number of hours for each internship varies.
Lab Courses (LAB) are face-to-face classes where students perform tasks as directed by faculty. Faculty members monitor the activity and provide individual and/or group instruction/assistance
Media Courses (MED) deliver all or a portion of instruction through either cable broadcast or pre-recorded video lessons. The videos are available in DVD format from the Billington Library.
Online Courses (ONLNE) use the Internet and a Learning Management System (D2L) to deliver course materials and to facilitate student-instructor, student-content, and student to student interaction. To participate in online courses, the student should have a good understanding of computer hardware and software applications and the Internet.
Continuing Education Online Courses (CEONL) and materials are delivered via the Internet. To participate in online courses, the student should have a good understanding of computer applications and Internet navigation. For more information about this course and other online learning options visit CE Online.
Private (PLV) lessons for credit are available from beginning to advanced in voice, piano, guitar, brass, woodwind and percussion. Lessons are scheduled by arrangement with private music instructors.
Self-Paced Courses (SEL) and Self-Paced Online (SPO) are offered on a schedule of study that allows students more flexible scheduling options. Course interaction is based upon a contract between student - instructor and in some cases can take up to one calendar year to complete. Some courses may use online delivery to facilitate the learning experience.

Travel Courses (TRV) may require in-class activities as well as traveling to a destination. Students will be responsible for the cost of the travel as well as the course costs.
Seats Open is an approximation of the number of seats available and may not represent the actual number of seats open at the time of registration.
This course is approved by the Kansas Board of Regents for guaranteed transfer among all Kansas public postsecondary institutions. Additional courses may also be eligible for transfer. Please visit the JCCC Registrar to learn more.
