ISNS2366 - Global Climate Change

ISNS 2366 Global Climate Change (3 semester credit hours) The course will integrate the four main Earth Sciences - Geology, Biology, Paleontology, Oceanography, Meteorology, and Astronomy - and will demonstrate the inseparable connection between these sciences and how their interplay determines world climate conditions. A biological component - including the evolution of the human species - will also be incorporated to show how life itself is likely Earth's thermostat that regulates climate on a range of spatial and temporal scales.
