This graduate seminar examines emerging and current issues in Environmental and Urban Geosciences. Most environmental issues and their solutions are inherently multidisciplinary and are characterized by significant interactions between oceans, atmosphere, land, and society. In addition to examining these issues, this seminar engages students in the process of critically evaluating Earth and human systems studies. The course provides students with a fundamental background of todayâ€™s important environmental challenges and experience doing the craft of science through critically reading, thinking, writing, and speaking. Enrollment Requirements: Prerequisite: Geog 5595 or Geology 5595.
