EVSC 2559: New Course in Environmental Science
Credits: 1–4
This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject area of environmental science.
EVSC 2850: Polar Environments
Credits: 3
This course explores the unique aspects of polar systems (Arctic and Antarctic) and lessons for the larger globe by integrating relevant aspects of climate science, geology, glaciology and cryosphere science, oceanography, ecology, and human-dimensions.
EVSC 4066: Changing Global Carbon Cycle
Credits: 3
This course is designed to introduce upper-level undergraduate students to the natural and human-driven perturbations that affect the global carbon cycle. The course covers major factors and aspects of the changing carbon cycle including fossil fuel use, agriculture and land-use change, atmospheric build-up, evolving land biosphere, and ocean uptake. Relevant observational methods, data sets and syntheses, and numerical models are introduced. One semester of college Biology or Chemistry, or permission of the instructor.
EVSC 4559: New Course in Environmental Science
Credits: 1–4
This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject area of environmental science.
EVSC 4993: Independent Study
Credits: 1–6
Specialized topics in ecology, atmosphere, hydrology, environmental geology, or environmental systems not normally covered in formal classes under the direction of the faculty. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
EVSC 4995: Supervised Research
Credits: 1–6
Original research usually involving a field or laboratory problem in the environmental sciences under the direction of one or more faculty members. The results may form the basis of an undergraduate thesis which is required to partially fulfill the Distinguished Majors Program in environmental sciences. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
EVSC 5060: Coastal Oceanography
Credits: 3
An interdisciplinary course covering physical, ecological and biogeochemical processes occurring along coastlines and within coastal ecosystems.
EVSC 7066: Changing Global Carbon Cycle
Credits: 3
The global carbon cycle is changing dramatically due to human and natural processes. Major factors including fossil fuel use, agriculture and land-use change, atmospheric build-up, and land biosphere and ocean uptake. The course emphasizes conceptual and quantitative understanding of the impact of these different factors over the past several centuries and near-term future under a changing climate, environmental, and society.
