Modeling the Earth and Environment

E&ES 375
Spring 2019
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: E&ES 575
Course Cluster: Integrated Design, Engineering & Applied Science Minor

Models can provide insights into Earth systems that are difficult to obtain by direct experimentation or observation. This course will introduce students to the process of translating Earth systems into idealized mathematical models, specific methods for solving the resulting equations, and implementation of models in MATLAB. We will explore cases from a range of topics in the earth and environmental sciences to gain a better appreciation of the insights models can offer.
