Subject: New course:  ENSP399R – Global Climate Change / Coastal Indicators

Description:
This new course provides a unique opportunity to contribute to a national
global change research program investigating “indicators” of global
change, for example, drought, flooding, sea level rise, etc.  This spring,
the course will focus on “coastal resilience indicators” in the face of
climate change and coastal hazards and will be co-taught by two scientists
working on the project. Students will help analyze “green infrastructure”
like sea grasses and SAV’s; and “gray” services, like breakwaters and
sea walls.  Along the way, you will have a terrific opportunity to explore
how science policy is developed and connect with scientists and policy-makers
at the cutting edge of climate change research and policy.  Because
environmental challenges and human responses to them are multi-dimensional,
the course is open to motivated students in all majors, including:  ANTH,
AOSC, BSCI, ECON, Engineering, ENSP, ENST, GEOG, GIS, GVPT, etc.  Students
enrolled in the Sustainability Studies Minor are also encouraged to enroll.
Interested students should e-mail: Dr. Ariana Sutton-Greer at

following information in your message:  Why are you interested in this
course? What is your major, UID, and expected graduation date?  Since this
class is likely to be different from others you have taken, please make a
point of attending the first class to learn more about it and confirm your
interest. The course will be taught on Fridays, 10-1 pm, in 0215 SYM.
