Physical Geography Courses

GEOG-3216(3) ARCTIC ENVIRONMENTS (Le3) The Arctic comprises about one-third of Canada but most 'southern' Canadians have little more than a passing knowledge of its character. This course is designed to improve our understanding of the physical environment, ecology, history, people, economy, and political development of a region which becomes less remote from the affairs of the nation each year.
Prerequisites: GEOG-1201(3) and GEOG-1202(3)

GEOG-3218(3) GLOBAL BIOGEOCHEMICAL CYCLES (Le3) This course examines global cycles of water and major elements, including carbon, nitrogen, phospherous, and sulfur as expressed in atmospheric, terrestrial, ocean and freshwater environments. This course covers topics such as interactions between cycles and the Earth's climate: interactions between global and local processes: and impacts of human pressures such as land use change and pollution. These topics are explored using current and scientific literature, lectures, group discussions and class participation.
Experimental Course: This course is offered on a trial basis to gauge interest in the topic. Students who successfully complete this curse receive credit as indicated.
Prerequisites: GEOG-1201(3) and GEOG-1202(3) or permission of the Instructor.

GEOG-3219(3) QUATERNARY ENVIRONMENTS (Le3) The Quaternary is a period of dramatic climatic changes. This course examines the consequences of Quaternary climatic fluctuations on the physical environment. Consideration will be given to some of the important evidence and techniques used to reconstruct Quaternary environments and chronology.
Prerequisite: Any second year physical geography course, or permission of instructor.

GEOG-4203(3) TOPICS IN CLIMATOLGY (S3) This seminar course requires students to complete climate-related research projects, either individually or as a group. Research topics will vary to suit the interests of both the Instructor and the students.
Prerequisites: GEOG-2207(3), or the former GEOG-2205(6), or the former GEOG-2206(3), or permission of the instructor.
Restrictions: Honours form required.

GEOG-4212(3) TOPICS IN EARTH SCIENCES (S3) The course examines current and historically significant concepts in fluvial and glacial geomorphology, geology, and related earth sciences, particularily those which produced lasting shifts in the way earth science phenomena are interpreted. Among the broad subject areas which are discussed are concepts in landscape evolution, the characteristics, patterns and metamorphosis of river channels, glacial spillways on the Prairies, catastrophic drainage of ice sheets, patterns of glacial erosion, geomorphic thresholds, plate tectonics theory, and asteroid impact and the Geologic Time Scale.
Prerequisites: 6 credit hours from GEOG-2215(3), GEOG-2216(3), GEOG-2218(3), GEOG-2219(3), or the former GEOG-2201(6) or the former GEOG-2202)6).
Restrictions: Honours form required.

GEOG-4215(3) PROJECTS IN EARTH SCIENCE (S3) This course discusses state-of-the-art geomatics techniques that can be apllied to understanding and monitoring the Earth's surface environment, as well as other planetary surfaces. These include techniques for monitoring water quality, vegetation health, greenhouse gasses, and planetary surface mapping. Lectures are supplemented by individual research projects that apply geomatics concepts to particular aspects of terrestrial and planteary monitoring.
Prerequisites: GEOG-1201(3) and GEOG-1202(3); or GEOG-2215(3) or GEOG-2316(3) or GEOG-3319(3).
Restrictions: Honours form required.

GEOG-4219(3) PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY SEMINAR (S3) This course integrates aspects of physical geography and examines contemporary concepts and issues in earth science, atmospheric science, and biogeography. Research topics vary to suit the interests of the students and the expertise of the instructor.
Experimental Course: This course is offered on a trial basis to gauge interest in the topic. Students who successfully complete this curse receive credit as indicated.

Prerequisites: 6 credit hours in Physical Geography at or above the 2000 level.
