Primary Instructor:

We use a case study approach to environmental problem solving using lakes in North America, Europe, and East Africa as examples. In each case we ask what are the principles that must be understood in order to answer practical questions about water quality, food web dynamics, and so on. Using case studies, this course explores the principles of the multidisciplinary science known as limnology--the study of inland waters that parallels oceanography. As features of the earth, lakes present the scientist with challenges arising from the geological processes that form and destroy the basins, the physics of air and water movements that mix or separate them into layers, the chemistry of water, sediments, and organisms, plus the ecological and evolutionary processes that play out within them.

This course is open to graduate students as well. There is no required text; all readings will be posted to CTools.
