Introduction to glaciers and ice sheets and their impact on the environment. Covers glacier mass balance, ice flow, basal motion, glacier hydrology, glacier-ocean interactions, and ice core records. Examines the methods used to understand glacier behavior. Special attention will be given to the wide variety of glaciers found in Alaska. Prerequisites: ENVS/GEOG S102 or GEOL S104, MATH S152.

Tuition and fees: $546 (additional charges may apply)

An introduction to two related disciplines emphasizing a geographical focus on natural processes. Landscape ecology studies large-scale ecological patterns and processes occurring on whole landscapes; biogeography studies species distribution in relation to environmental and historical factors. Students learn how these disciplines serve as foundations for decision making in land use planning, resource management, and biological conservation. Includes the use of geospatial tools like GIS and remote sensing, and hands-on field exercises.
