In this course, we will approach Environmental Science from an interdisciplinary viewpoint and use quantitative approaches to understand the physical, chemical, and biological environment and their interactions. A critical emphasis through this course will be on ecosystem services and how climate change, land use change, and pollution affect these. We will further review environmental law and policies and address concepts of sustainability and resource conservation.
