Environmental Systems Analysis

(3,3) 4 alternate years

The basic approach and statistical concerns associated with conducting an environmental analysis, as required for an environmental impact analysis will be integrated with interpretation of data from actual situations. Students will learn how analysis of soil, water, air, plant communities, animal communities and organic tissue analysis can be combined to evaluate the environmental health of a specific site. Discussion of solid, liquid, and hazardous wastes from a macro- and microscopic approach will be included. Prerequisite: CHEM341. Pre- or corequisite: EVRN313.
