GEOG 396 - Polar Environmental Change Research

Earth’s polar regions are particularly vulnerable to observed and projected shifts in climate and act as harbingers of global change, as these regions are poised to warm more than any other region over the next century.  This seminar focuses on recent advances in polar environmental change research, providing a system-science approach to understanding land-ocean-atmosphere-ice-human interactions at high latitudes.  Students also focus on independent research projects that can be contextualized within existing primary and cutting-edge polar science literature. Topics covered will change each semester. Open to doctoral and masters students.
