Field Studies in Environmental Science
An interdisciplinary natural science approach to the study of environmental issues.
The primary focus of this course is a drinking water supply for Saratoga Springs:
Loughberry Lake. The sources of the lake's water supply, chemical characteristics
of the lake, and the nature of the land surrounding the lake, including Skidmore's
North Woods, are considered from a biological, chemical, and geological perspective.
The course involves laboratory and field work and emphasizes the scientific method,
and techniques and theories used to measure, analyze, and describe changes in the
environment. Three house of lecture, three hours of lab a week. Offered spring semester.
Prerequisite: QR1. (Fulfills natural sciences requirement.)
