Life activities alter the physical and chemical environment of Earth’s surface and are altered by that environment, while physical and chemical processes transform rock, transfer material, and create new rocks that record Earth’s environmental history. The interactions over very long times constitute a coevolution of Earth and Life. Course uses modern systems and ancient systems to illustrate principles, methods of reconstructing deep history, and the context of natural change inherent to life and earth.
