ENVS 30 Global Environmental Science

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.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation.
