Mineral Physics 101 is a COMPRES funded effort to assemble materials for an entry level graduate course in Mineral Physics designed for use in a distance education setting. A DE graduate course provides a solution to the problem many mineral physics faculty face when there are not enough mineral physics graduate students at their institution for a graduate course in mineral physics to “make”. The course was taught from UNLV in Spring 2012.

The home page for the course is found here.

As part of the course we wrote a series of educational modules that can be found on the SERC website .
