GEO 374 - Carbon Cycle and Climate

4 Credit(s)
This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of the carbon cycle. You will learn how the carbon cycle, climate and the abiotic and biotic components of the environment influence each other. You will learn how carbon moves throughout the different components of the carbon cycle and where carbon is stored in the Earth’s system. Using case studies, NASA visualizations, current research, on line inter-actives, and field data, you will explore how living things on land, in soils, and in our oceans, regulate the carbon cycle. Because carbon, climate and the environment are tightly coupled, you will analyze the effect of carbon dioxide on the Earth’s thermostat and our climate. Finally, you will seek possible solutions to a warming climate. $50 Course Fee
