An interdisciplinary analysis of interactions of land and water systems, and how upstream management and behavior impacts downstream aquatic systems. A primary focus will be the analysis, comparison and solutions related to eutrophication of coastal systems.

Students will demonstrate their integrated knowledge by preparing an interdisciplinary proposal addressing coastal eutrophication.
