This Physical Geology course is designed to give you an understanding of how the Earth works. Topics that we will discuss include: what causes earthquakes, how old is the Earth and how we know this, how has the Earth evolved into the world that we see, and the nature, limitations, and benefits associated with extracting natural resources, such as petroleum.
Most of the lectures are in the Lecture (audio) playlist below. Most of the files have been edited to eliminate long pauses that occur while I am making sketches and to eliminate discussions of laboratory topics at the beginning of the lectures.

Fantastic Knowledge for Everyone

Dr. Hiatt's course is great for the average person who wants to be able to understand how the Earth works. I've listened to the course all the way through 4 times now and learn a little more each time... and when world events occur I feel I understand them that much more. I find Dr. Hiatt funny and engaging but the best part is his ability to explain very technical processes in an understanding and interesting way.
