The MEs is for those students interested in Environmental and Resource Management or some aspects of Human Geography or environmental applications of Geomatics.
This field is concerned with ecosystem characteristics and processes and the movement of mass (materials, water, carbon and nutrients) and energy among the hydrosphere, lithosphere, biosphere and atmosphere. Faculty are interested in geomorphology, as well as ecosystem science and management. Both field studies and modeling occur in the areas of hydrology and water chemistry. There are major strengths in cold regions research in cryosphere research, and in wetland studies. In climatology there is an emphasis on climatic change processes and impacts. Applied aspects of physical geography are emphasized.
