Surveys the major terrestrial components of the cryosphere, including permafrost, glaciers, and ice sheets. Emphasizes physical processes involving ice, including thermal behavior, ice deformation, and mass balance, but also considers biogeochemical processes and landforms associated with ice. The climate context, including human interactions and recent climate history, will be considered. The course will be taught in a combination lecture-seminar format. Recommended prereq., GEOG 4241. Requisites: Requires prerequisite course of GEOG 1011 or GEOL 1010 (minimum grade D-).
