ENVS 582 Urban Coasts: Habitats, Stressors, and Resilience


3 semester hours

Urban coastal regions provide a wealth of ecosystem services associated with their shallow marine, shoreline, estuarine, and wetland habitats, but are under constant stresses from human activities and a changing climate. Through this course, students will learn about: 1) the nature of coastal habitats; 2) the natural and anthropogenic interactions between oceanic, coastal, and watershed processes impacting these habitats; and 3) policies and strategies, both behavioral and structural, to mitigate stressors resulting in more resilient coastal cities.
