Environmental Physics covers how solar energy input, the atmosphere, the oceans, the terrestrial environment and the biosphere interact with each other at global and regional scales. Earth's systems are not static and the course will deal with their evolution over geological times and cover recent and projected future changes to the climate and ozone layer, among other topics that are important for society and its decision makers. This course emphasizes conceptual understanding of mechanisms, data sets and modeling techniques and uses elementary math and physics principles to guide student to a comprehensive, but practical, understanding of the physical aspects of the environment of planet Earth. Class Notes: **Course Requisites: MATH 122B AND PHYS 102.
