Basic physical sciences crucial to environmental issues, including chemistry, geology, hydrology, climate science, and cross-media interactions; land, air, and water pollution, climate change, production and consumption of energy, sea level rise, and anthropogenic changes in the cryosphere.
• Demonstrate a basic understanding of the primary physical science disciplines relevant to environmental issues (i.e. chemistry, geology, hydrology, climate science, and cross-media interactions) and to understand how principles in these disciplines collectively govern the natural behavior of earth’s environment. • To understand the complexity of current environmental problems by recognizing the multiplicity of causes and consequences of major challenges to the natural environment. • To be able define and explain basic issues concerning the ability of the human community to interact in a sustainable manner with the environment in areas such as land, air, and water pollution, climate change, production and consumption of energy, sea level rise, and anthropogenic changes in the cryosphere. • To understand the importance of a ‘systems approach’ in environmental science and to gain skill in applying this approach to contemporary environmental issues. • To critically evaluate scientific information derived from the physical sciences and arrive at defensible assessments of its validity and applicability to improving environment qualities.
