Description

These lectures were recorded from Summer '07 - Summer '09 and are supplementary to the lectures given in our SYGN 101 - Earth and Environmental Systems Sciece course. Though these lectures go into more depth than time allows in our classroom, the classroom lectures have the advantage of staying current as earth science advances.

Hands down the best science podcast

To say that Dr. Shorey is an extremely gifted, talented orator and educator is an understatement. His passion and knowledge comes through in his lectures, making sometimes complex subjects fascinating and easy to digest. I have little doubt that if more science educators like him existed, the world would have more scientists in it. It is for that reason I sincerely hope he will consider creating more podcasts.

Made for listening

Excellent. Thoroughly enjoy them on my way to/from work. Not so technical that the wannabe geologist in me can't understand, but deep enough that you don't feel like things are so basic you might as well watch PBS (which does have its virtue).

The wonderful thing is that these are NOT audio-taped lectures where they are constantly referencing the slides that the audience or class is listening to and therefore are just wondering what they are looking at.

This series was made to be listened to (yes he does have some pdfs you can download but they are simply supplements to the lecture and not required to be used in conjuction with).

Geology is such a visual subject and he does a fantastic job of painting pictures and diagrams with words. He uses excellent analogies that make it easy to understand and goes at a pace where I never feel lost. Greatly appreciated.

First-rate, rigorous science at its best

This podcast is unlike any other I've seen in its scope, which is breathtaking. Dr. Shorey attempts (and succeeds) at describing nothing less than the earth in its totality, our island home. Everything you ever wanted to know about the earth, from its origins through a standard physical geology course, to the hydrosphere, weather and the atmosphere, and ultimately, the biospere. He ends with a complete and accessible history of the earth. All in all, a stunning performance by a magnificent teacher. I can't wait until he does his podcast on meteorology. This course is the real deal: listen to it!
