EEES 130 Global Environmental Science

Held concurrently with ENVS 30.  This course examines human influences on global environmental systems with an emphasis on understanding the major biogeochemical cycles. It investigates how human activities (e.g. deforestation, changes in biodiversity, air pollution, desertification) can disrupt environmental processes and the ability of our global environment to support and sustain life. Important feedbacks between biological and physical processes and the atmosphere are also considered in detail. The course explores how natural and managed ecosystems respond to a changing climate and altered resource availabilities along with prospects for the future. Additionally, it examines international science programs and policies that aim to limit excessive human disruption of the global environment. Graduate students in EEES 130 will be required to supplement the typical assignments with an additional writing assignment that incorporates elements of the course material into their current line of scientific inquiry.
