GEOG 2003 - Environmental Geology


3 cr. 3 hr. Offered every other year

Environmental Geology course engages students in a science-based approach to understanding and solving environmental problems. Topics range from impact of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and flooding on local communities, to climatic changes on a global scale and the effects of the current world population on the carrying capacity of Earth. We will use scientific principles as the baseline of our discussions, but will also consider how policy, economics, and social norms influence attitudes towards, and use of, natural resources.
