PH 125 - Earth Science II

Credit Hours: 3

PH 125 offers an interdisciplinary discussion of both natural and human-induced global environmental change at various scales. The course provides a comprehensive description of how advances in the physical, biological and geological sciences are being integrated to understand the interplay between the Earth’s components (atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere). Topics include the Earth’s building blocks, the Earth through time, natural hazards, natural resources and Earth system cycles (such as weather, climate change and atmospheric pollution).

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • develop an understanding of the physical causes and events associated with natural earth processes; and
  • develop an understanding of the current methods of monitoring, measuring, describing, predicting and reporting natural events.
