GEOS 2320 - Integrated Earth System Studies

The course will view the whole earth as a single system and focus on the interrelations and interactions among different subsystems and changes that occur in these with time. Topics covered will include basic laws of physics and chemistry that operate on the earth, evolution, biogeochemical cycles, global changes (natural and anthropogenic) and human interactions with the environment. Emphasis will be placed on feedback loops and amplification factors in the earth system. Construction of models of systems will be explored to determine possible impact of a change on the system as a whole.

Prerequisites & Corequisites: Prerequisites: GEOS 1000 or GEOS 1300 or GEOG 1050.
