This course is sustainability-related because it includes sustainability as a course component or module, or concentrates on a specific sustainability principle or issue. The course helps build knowledge about a component of sustainability or introduces students to sustainability concepts during part of the course.  At least 25% of the course content focuses on at least one of the enumerated sustainability criteria.

The Atmosphere

The composition and circulation of the atmosphere with a focus on explaining the fundamentals of weather and climate. Topics include solar and terrestrial radiation, clouds, and weather patterns.
Department: 
EARTHSS

Ocean Biogeochemistry

Overview of oceanography for those interested in Earth system science. Focus is on physical, chemical, and biological processes that drive biogeochemical cycling in the oceans. Coastal systems also reviewed, with emphasis on California waters. Corequisites: Mathematics 2B and Physics 3B or 7C. Prerequisite: Chemistry 1C.
Department: 
EARTHSS

Research

Supervised original research in areas of Earth System Science. Prerequisite: consent of instructor. May be repeated for credit.
Department: 
EARTHSS

Practicum in Earth System Science

Designed to introduce first-year graduate students to research. Students explore research opportunities and develop a proposal for a summer research project under the direction of a faculty mentor.
Department: 
EARTHSS

Ecosystem Ecology

A mechanistic perspective on ecosystem processes. Covers ecosystem development, element cycling, and interactions with plants and microbes. The role of ecosystems in environmental change is also addressed. Prerequisite: Chemistry 51C. Same as Biological Sciences E118.
Department: 
EARTHSS

The Physical Environment

Covers the origin and evolution of the Earth, its atmosphere, and oceans, from the perspective of biogeochemical cycles, energy use, and human impacts on the Earth system. Earth System Science 1 and 25 may not both be taken for credit.
Department: 
EARTHSS

Development Control Law and Policy

Investigates legal and institutional frameworks for development control. Review of constitutional issues implicated in land-use regulation. Traces development control historically and analyzes contemporary approaches to land-use control which reflect environmental and economic development concerns. Prerequisite: graduate standing
Department: 
CRM/LAW

Analysis of Hydrologic Systems

Application of systems theory in hydrologic, land surface, and biogeochemical modeling. Design, identification, and calibration of conceptual models. Principles of dynamic systems and modeling approaches, theory of linear systems and mathematical concepts of differential calculus, theoretical concepts of parameter estimation and optimization theory.
Department: 
CEE

Hydrology

Elements of the hydrologic cycle including precipitation, infiltration, evapotranspiration, ground water, and runoff. Unit Hydrograph theory and routing methods. Introduction to precipitation/runoff relationship and watershed modeling. Statistical methods and flood frequency analysis. Discussion section covers advanced topics. Prerequisite: CEE170 or MAE130A or equivalent, or consent of instructor.
Department: 
CEE

Watershed Modeling

Basic principles of hydrologic modeling are practiced in detail. Concepts of watershed, floodplains delineation, hydrologic impact, design studies, and GIS tools are discussed. Focus on the USACE (HEC) software tools (HEC-HMS) and HECRAS) along with their associated GIS interfaces
