Program Description:
Earth systems science explores the interactions among the atmosphere, biosphere, geosphere, and hydrosphere, and the natural processes that cycle matter through those “spheres”. Understanding Earth’s systems and cycles allows us to develop practices for resource extraction, consumption, and waste disposal that allow for economic growth while maintaining environmental sustainability. In this international travel course, we will explore Earth systems science and sustainability in Iceland, a geologically fascinating, geographically isolated, resource-limited (and resource-abundant) country with a commitment to social and environmental sustainability. 

Please be aware that this course will meet regularly in the second half of the spring semester before departing for Iceland in May. Tentative class schedule will be Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30 - 4:50. Students may not register for this NASC 3900 if they cannot attend class during that time.
