Physical/Life Science Exploration
Sustainability - Limited
Social and environmental changes are occurring at rates never before witnessed in the history of humanity. Geographic data have revolutionized our view of the physical and human processes causing global change, and Google Earth has greatly increased our ability to access and visualize these data. This course uses Google Earth as a tool to investigate important geographic processes that are responsible for global change phenomena. Interactive, self-guided labs will use Google Earth to analyze datasets for topics including climate change, population growth, migration, land cover change, disease, and natural hazards.
