Provides a systematic approach to the application of geomorphological principles and techniques in environmental problem solving involving earth surface processes and landforms. The course draws on regional examples to demonstrate how geomorphological evidence has and can be used in effective management decisions. Through regular assignments, training is provided in field and laboratory techniques with which geomorphologists and other environmental scientists may measure, monitor and manage geomorphological processes. Specifically students will acquire skills and techniques in air photo interpretation, field observation, numerical modeling and reporting.
