Course Description:


“Planetary Materials” is a part  of the project “Foreign high-quality Curriculum System introductions”, 
that will form a unique course system for the educations of planetary science in China previously introduced
from Washington University.
 
Overall, as the fruit of deepen cooperation  in planetary science  between Wash U and SDU.

The course was taught by Dr. Kun Wang from Washington University (Wash U), and
Prof. Mikhail Zolotov from Arizona State University (ASU), on July 4~22, 2016.

This course was taught in the summer of 2015 by  
Prof. Yang Liu from California Institute of Technoliogy, Dr. Kun Wang from Harvard  University, and in the
summer of 2016 by  Dr. Kun Wang from Washington University in St. Louis and 
Prof. Mikhail Zolotov from Arizona State University.

Planetary material is one of important basic course of planetary science.

The basic contents of this course include: the overview of mineralogy and planet; fundamental principles of
crystal chemistry, symmetry and structure of crystals; mineral species of planetary materials (from the Moon,
Mars, asteroid belt and selected other achondrite meteorite groups.) and their characteristics of mineralogy,
geochemistry and petrography;  the analytical method for minerals; comparative analysis of geological evolutionary
 history of planet; the history of human planetary exploration and their important discoveries.
 
By taking this course, students can master not only the basic knowledge of mineralogy, petrography and
chemical  feature of meteorolite and other planetary materials but also the basic analytical methods for minerals.
The format of this course includes lectures and experiments.

Grading:


Final Score = (Attendance + Coursework assignment) * 10% + Hands-on Exercises * 40% + Final Exam * 50%
The final exam will be a closed-book one.
