What do Wasatch powder days, 100-year floods, and declining water quality have in common? This class will explore the hydrologic cycle as a system that responds to external inputs. The seasonal snowpack in the Wasatch Front will be used to examine this system on a micro scale, while lectures, readings, and field trips will be used to understand the hydrologic cycle on a larger scale. Based on our understanding of how systems are affected by external forces, the class will examine the effect of human interaction, for example water resource management and water pollution
