Geology Diploma

Elearncollege offers a diploma course in Geology that starts with a glance at the basics of the history of the geological formation of planet Earth, the different layers of the planet’s interior and their properties, and the geological structures of continents and oceans. It explores the importance of tectonic forces through geological timescales, subduction zones, hot spots, and seafloor spreading. This course will teach you the significance of rock cycles for Earth, various methods used to classify sediment, and the basis of defining and classifying different types of rocks. Elearncollege’s diploma course on Geology covers many aspects of the discipline, like mineral formation and the environmental factors associated with it, rock-forming minerals, silicate, ‘Big Ten’, and many other methods of classifying minerals, along with the benefits that these minerals have. You will be familiar with volcanoes’ external and internal features, their types and categories of eruption, volcanic tephra constituents, lava flow types, and subduction zone volcanoes. The course also explores seismology, the processes leading to earthquakes, building mountains, and other activities associated with the field. It also covers the hazards associated with earthquakes.
The Geology Diploma course will teach you climate trends that have come and gone throughout the geological history of Earth, different systems that cause modifications in climate, the importance of the ocean for the environment, different anthropogenic factors that influence climate, the formation of soil and the distribution, the planet’s watershed, and processes that lead to contamination. It also teaches how to define geological times, differentiate relative dating techniques from absolute dating techniques, and understand various dating methods using evidence from fossils through radiometric isotope decay.
Industrialisation and agriculture are examples of anthropogenic influences that are direct factors that lead to environmental changes on the planet. The course goes through the history of such. It looks at the ecological effects of industrialisation and agriculture and the adverse geological effects caused by urbanisation.
The diploma course on Geology offered by Elearncollege has been infused with all necessary fundamental knowledge on geology to equip students with a deep and solid understanding of geology. The course will provide information about the weather, solar system, plate tectonics, rock types, volcanoes, and many other intriguing topics. Experienced instructors can provide detailed explanations about each topic and concept and pictures that will enhance comprehension.
The Geology Diploma course ends with a discussion on fossil fuels, geological values associated with fossil fuels, the process of extraction and development, the effects on the environment, and a look into the future in the possible effects of economic mining, geothermal energy as a substitute for fossil fuel, and the geological implications that this could have.
The diploma course in Geology is open for registration for any individual interested in geology and the environment in general. It would be beneficial for any person who considers obtaining a degree in environmental science or for teachers who want to gain additional knowledge on geography and geology that they can use to enhance their classroom teaching.
