Introduction to Environmental, Earth and Ocean Sciences

This course offers a broad overview of the physical, chemical, biological, and geological principles underlying the environmental sciences. Students are introduced to natural processes and interactions in the atmosphere, in the ocean, and on land primarily through case studies at the coastal ocean-watershed interface. The course focuses on biogeochemical cycling of the elements, as well as on changes in these natural cycles with time, especially with recent anthropogenic influences. Along with its co-requisite lab, EEOS 121, this course will lay the foundation for understanding the key concepts of Environmental Sciences required for the EEOS major.
