GEOG 502 - Arctic Systems Science - Fall 2023

Investigates the Arctic as a coupled system, and how the Arctic interacts with other Earth systems. Draws on physical, chemical, and biological sciences to understand linked topics such as Arctic glaciers, marine environments, hydrology, permafrost, wildlife, vegetation, and sea ice. Particular focus is paid to cycles of carbon, water, and energy as key drivers of the Arctic system. Selected human interactions with the Arctic system are also examined.
