Cognate Categories

Description

This cognate looks at global environmental change over time, examining both natural drivers and human ones. This cognate will enable you to explore essential functions of the Earth's systems and learn about key tools that are used to monitor those systems, whether terrestrial, marine, or atmospheric. In addition, you will look at the ways in which the planet is changing, either due to natural processes or to human activities. You will also examine how such changes are dealt with by societies, and how the predicted disruptions that will accompany changing global climate may disrupt existing social-ecological systems.
