This course provides an introduction to environmental science. Students will gain an understanding of the interactions between the biotic, which is inclusive of people, and the physical components of the Earth system. Through lecture, analysis of scientific literature, and lab we address topics such as biodiversity, agriculture, water resources, atmospheric pollution and climate change, and renewable and non-renewable energy, linking central scientific concepts to local, regional, and global case studies. In discussions, we explore policy applications and evaluate solutions based on scientific knowledge. Through field and laboratory experiences, students are introduced to methods for monitoring environmental quality, approaches for quantitative analysis of datasets, and conventions for reporting scientific findings.
