          Grade   Method:   REG/P-F/AUD   GEOG   312
          explores  the  chemistry  and  cycling  of
          elements  across  the Earth's  surface and
          atmosphere  with  special emphasis  on the
          human-induced  changes  in biogeochemistry
          that  are  driving  global  warming,  acid
          rain,  ozone  depletion,  water pollution,
          and  nutrient  saturation  of  freshwater,
          estuarine,  and coastal environments.  The
          basic    biogeochemical    processes   are
          introduced  and then integrated to explain
          the   global   cycles  of  water,  carbon,
          nitrogen,    phosphorus,    and    sulfur.
          Prerequisites: CHEM 101 and CHEM 102, BIOL

          and Ocean:Global Impacts                          

          Grade   Method:   REG/P-F/AUD   GEOG  400A
          examines   the   tropical  atmosphere  and
          oceans  as  key  driving forces  of global
          climates  and of weather in mid-latitudes.
          A   main   theme  is  the  role  of  ocean
          circulations    tropical    thunderstorms,
          hurricanes,  and "coupled"  phenomena such
          as  El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) in
          the  global  cycles  of water  and energy.
          The   course   explores   concepts  behind
          seasonal  prediction of regional climates,
          hurricane  activity  and  ENSO.  Past  and
          future  influence  of  Tropics  of  global
          climate    from   continental   drift   to
          deforestation is examined, emphasizing the
          impacts    of   human   civilization.   An
          important   focus   is   on   the  use  of
          satellites  and  in-situ  measurements for
          monitoring  the  tropical  atmosphere  and
          oceans.  Prerequisite: GEOG 311 or consent
          of instructor.
