GEOG 101 - PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY
Physical Geography examines natural systems and processes that shape the landforms, climate, and vegetation around us. After providing historical perspectives about changes in the interpretation of geological and hydrological cycles, the course introduces three disciplines that collectively encompass physical geography: geomorphology, climatology, and biogeography. The landforms of uplift and erosion will be examined through readings, lectures, visuals, and fieldwork. Atmospheric processes that shape climate and weather will be introduced, followed by a look at some issues affecting soils and vegetation. The public policy consequences of these issues, from natural hazards to global warming, will be examined. The course requires students to make individual field—based observations of the natural environment. This course fulfills the General Education category-Scientific Reasoning. Our contemporary culture faces increasing distrust in scientific principles. Only citizens with basic scientific sensibility can grapple with the complexity, diversity, and change they will face.

GEOG 210 - WATER RESOURCES
An overview of water issues, both regional and global, based on the physical and cultural geography of fresh water. Physical aspects include the hydrologic cycle, regional water budgets, stream flow processes, and groundwater aquifers. Resource management issues include examination of drinking water and sewage treatment, floods and floor mitigation approaches, the pros and cons of dams, lake management, freshwater fisheries, and water pollution. Case studies will be drawn from the local area and from other parts of the world. Several classes are held in the field, and there will be guest speakers who have worked on water issues in thus region. This course fulfills the General Education category Systems Sustainability and Society. This category is intended to include mostly science and social science courses that take either a qualitative or quantitative approach to the scientific method. (Water Resources includes both qualitative and quantitative approaches, and incorporates both science and social science.) The category recognizes that there are different approaches to, and debates over, scientific inquiry (science or social science), scientific methods, and scientific paradigms. It takes a pluralistic approach to addressing the pressing problems of sustainability through a systems approach.

This course provides an introduction to forests and their management on the local, national, and global scales. Field work is designed to familiarize students with basic forest sampling methods. Natural factors examined include basic ecosystem structure, nutrient cycles, succession, climate, fire, soils, water, and wildlife. Cultural factors include a review of management practices in tropical, temperate, and boreal forests, with special focus on deforestation and reforestation. The concepts of multiple-use and sustained-yield are examined from various viewpoints.

GEOG 309 - BIOGEOGRAPHY
Biogeography is an integrated study of past dispersal and present distributions of plants and animals. We will approach the subject using principles from biology, geology, geography, ecology and evolution. Topics include analysis of temporal and spatial patterns of distribution, vicariance, dispersal, species interactions, catastrophes, endemism, island biography, biogeographic modeling, conservation and human impacts on biotic distributions.
