Global Environmental Assessment
ENSC 130
Dr. Leslie A. Morrissey (RSENR/UVM)
  Human impacts on the global environment have led to some of the most significant and pressing scientific and policy issues of our times. An in-depth assessment of key environmental topics will be made using a case study approach supported by hands-on computer analyses with geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing tools applicable to these issues. A major focus of this course will address the mechanisms, causes, and consequences of global climate change. This survey-level course will introduce students to recent scientific discoveries and developments, state-of-the-art technologies, an interdisciplinary perspective, and the problem-solving skills necessary to assess and evaluate scientific data and findings.
