This course is designed to introduce students to the key topics of relevance to research in their chosen fields of study in environmental science. In the first term, seminar speakers are drawn from faculty, visiting researchers and environmental scien
The course will deal with specifically environmental geology and geophysics of urban areas especially the Greater Toronto Area. Emphasis will be on waste management, contaminant migration and site assessments.
This course covers an advanced set of techniques and applications of GIS, including a substantial practical component.
EES1114H provides an opportunity for a Master of Environmental Science (MEnvSc) student to work closely with a member of the faculty in order to conduct a literature review, a research proposal, and/or some preliminary investigations on a particular to
EES1115H is identical to EES1114H but must be carried out under the supervision of a different faculty member.
The study and consideration of climate change is of increasing significance to society. This course will review the evidence for climate change over the past 150 years using both direct measurements and proxy data.
This course provides an introduction to the field of ecological statistics. Students will become familiar with several methods of statistical analysis of categorical and multivariate environmental data.
This course will cover selected federal and provincial environmental regulations.
Environmental projects must be completed in a timely manner, for a preset cost and must satisfy many levels of regulation.
This course focuses on advanced processes in watershed hydrology for furthering our understanding of complex environmental problems, ranging from the characterization of freshwater resources to contaminant transport in aquatic systems.
The course will aim to provide an introduction to geomicrobiology and to describe how microbial communities have influenced biogeochemical and mineralogical processes through geologic time.
This course will introduce and discuss the basic topics and tools of applied climatology, and how its concepts can be used in everyday planning and operations (e.g. in transportation, agriculture, resource management, health and energy).
This graduate course will focus on adaptation science and practice at local, provincial, national and international scales.
In this course data analysis techniques utilizing Python and R statistical language will be discussed and introduced, as well as the basics of programming and scientific computing.
This course will cover environmental legislation at all levels of government that determines the way in which the Canadian Environment is managed.
This course is a broad introduction to applied risk assessment for environmental professionals.
Canada has a complex conservation landscape.
Conservation professionals often act as the interface between basic science and policy or management decisions. Thus students require a fundamental basic scientific literacy.
The field of ecology is rapidly changing and this course will cover recent advances, concepts or controversies in ecology.
