Courses

EES students are always allowed to register for any EES course, provided they meet the course prerequisites. However, faculty and students have selected which courses are most relevant to students in each program track. These lists will typically be created at the beginning of registration based on the schedule for the following semester, but may not be current if there have been late changes. If there is any question as to whether and when a course is being offered, please consult Banner.

The following listings are available as a PDF: Fall 2015 Course Listings. For updated locations and times, please see the dynamic course schedule.

Earth’s biosphere has evolved with its favorite climate conditions, while the evolution of Earth's atmosphere and climate has been regulated also by Earth’s biosphere. Interactions between atmosphere and biosphere are determinants of feedbacks in earth climate system through their cycling of energy, water, chemical elements, and trace gases. This course will introduce students basic concepts and principles of atmosphere-biosphere interactions that can be used in geosciences, hydrology, geography, and ecology to understand environmental issues and anthropogenic disturbance of earth climate system.
