EAS 4830 - [Environmental Biophysics]

(OPHLS-AG, PBS-AS)      
Fall. Next offered 2017-2018 (offered alternate years). 3 credits.

Co-meets with EAS 6830 .

S. Riha.

This course focuses on energy and mass transfers in the soil-plant-atmosphere system, including water, heat and gas flows, energy budgets and nutrient dynamics. Implications for sustainable management of different land use systems, and for research approaches and instrument design for monitoring transfers will be discussed. Students will be introduced to the use of simulation models for enhancing understanding and management of soil-plant-atmosphere systems.
