The Physical Environment
In this course, the physical environment is investigated from the perspective of appreciating the natural limits that earth systems impose. Themes in climatology, hydrology and geomorphology are examined in order to develop an understanding of how natural balances originate, and afford opportunities and constraints for a modern lifestyle. Specific topics include weather systems, water budgets, erosion by streams and waves, and the enhancement of stability in natural systems.
