Over the past 150,000 years humans have become an increasingly significant force on the Earth system, affecting climate, vegetation patterns, water flow and many other factors.

This course is part of the Environmental Systems introductory sequence (GE 201-208) for Environmental Geoscience majors and Environmental Studies minors.
