Introductory Environmental Science in the Rockies
June 16 - July 11, 2014
EARTH 202 introduces students to environmental science in the Rocky Mountains. The objective of the course is to understand through observation and hands-on experience how natural and human processes cause environmental change. Students will learn the principles of the physical sciences, including aspects of earth, atmosphere, and biogeographical sciences, while experiencing the grandeur of the west. We will use these principles to understand how past environmental change altered the Rocky Mountain landscape, plants and animals, and how humans are currently perturbing these natural systems. We will address today's most pressing environmental issues including climate change, bio diversity loss, and air, water, and soil pollution. This course is designed for all students with an interest in environmental science. It will include field trips to western locales including Yellowstone National Park.
