This course examines past, present, and future global climate change, focusing on its impacts on natural resource availability and quality. More specifically, we will look at current and future climatic impacts on the Earth’s major biomes (polar regions, deserts, forests, grasslands, etc.) and their resources, as well as changes in the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, soil, freshwater, and much more. We will focus on the spatial patterns of these changes and examine why these patterns appear as they do.
