Earth Systems (1044SCG)

This course introduces the main environmental spheres and important natural processes of the Earth, considered as a series of systems interacting at various scales. Features of the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere are explained, with emphasis given to the interrelationships between these spheres. In doing so, basic concepts of the more specialized fields of meteorology, climatology, hydrology, oceanography, soil science, geology, geomorphology and biogeochemistry will be studied. Incompatible: 1303ENV Earth Sciences, 1051AES Earth Sciences, 1302EAS Earth Sciences, 1004EAS Earth Sciences and GIS, 1004ENV Earth Science and GIS.
