IS 341 - Environmental Modeling (3)

Addressing environmental problems involves gathering data and determining specific mathematical equations which describe the data - a process known as environmental modeling. Environmental models help us to assess the impact of a problem and to predict its future consequences. In this course, students learn general principles of environmental science and learn to construct environmental models using basic mathematical equations. Students integrate the disciplines of environmental science and mathematics as they develop specific mathematical models which describe the dispersion of pollutants in the environment, including ground water, air pollutants, and hazardous materials. Students work in teams with the aid of a computer. Field trips support an emphasis on local sites and applications. PRE-2015 CORE: Level III.
