Environmental Science and Climate Change

Cindy Hauser, Associate Professor of Chemistry, Davidson College

We are an integrated component of the environment and critical study of environmental issues requires an inherently interdisciplinary approach.  Fellows in this seminar will have the opportunity to explore environmental issues from the perspective that is most meaningful to them and their students while providing fundamental knowledge regarding the scientific concepts, principles, processes, and methodologies that are required to understand how ecosystems work.  We will apply this knowledge to environmental challenges of interest to the Fellows, such as climate change, to understand the scientific basis, estimate the risks associated and evaluate alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them.
