SUST 610 - FOUNDATIONS:NATURAL RESOURCES,PROCESSES & MANAGEMENT
This course presents a broad survey of the critical, foundational concepts related to natural resources and their sustainable management. As a team-taught course, topics are addressed within four thematic modules: (a) geological resources; (b) water, pollutants and waste management; (c) energy and climate change; (d) applied ecology. Most weeks, the class is divided into three segments: (1) lecture about critical principles; (2) student presentations about case studies from the tri-state region; (3) seminar-style discussion about readings from the primary literature. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on how to extract useful lessons from case studies of environmental sustainability and degradation at local, regional and worldwide scales.
