Gaston E. Small

This course is designed to fulfill the senior capstone experience in Environmental Science. It brings together students from all the environmental science concentrations (biology, chemistry, and geology) to complete interdisciplinary research projects where students can integrate the knowledge gained in their distinct, yet complementary disciplinary tracks. The course will be a mix of research and seminar format designed to give students significant opportunities to practice the methods of scholarship and modes of communication used by environmental scientists. This course should be completed in the final Spring semester prior to graduation. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: ESCI 310 or permission of instructor.

Instructor:

Gaston E. Small

This course explores methods of solving environmental problems. These problems are by nature, interdisciplinary and are rarely addressed in a substantive fashion in traditional science textbooks. In this course, students and faculty work together to develop a working model of a critical earth system or biogeochemical cycle (i.e. the carbon or nitrogen cycle), and learn how to make calculations of human-induced changes to that system. Students from all concentrations of the environmental science major will work together on this interdisciplinary research project using modeling and systems analysis software to more fully understand specific environments and the quantitative methods of assessing challenges to those environments. This course should be taken by all ESCI students during their junior year. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: BIOL 209 or permission of instructor.
