EESC 2208 Environmental Systems: Quantitative Methods (Spring: 2 )

Course Description

This course focuses on some mathematical topics that are commonly used in analyses of environmental systems. The primary emphasis in the course will be on statistical methods, especially understanding statistical sampling and the determination of the mean, standard deviation, and confidence intervals of a population. Some commonly used probability distributions including the normal and Poisson distributions will be discussed. Other topics such as line fitting, non-linear models, and feedback systems will be introduced. The course is part of the Environmental Systems introductory sequence (EESC2201-EESC2208) for Environmental Geoscience majors.
