Thoughts in response to intro environmental geology questions.

Course goals?

What defines a scientific community?

Basic questions related to environmental geology that one must grapple with?

How do we understand complex natural systems?

What are major earth systems need to understand?

How is scientific literature read differently than other literature?

How to be effective, efficient in your learning in this course? The answer is simple in some sense - be as active and engaged as possible when you are in lecture or are studying. Just listening or viewing the material is relatively ineffective.

I will be happy to look at your notes to give you feedback. Just ask.
