Mark Kulp, Dinah Maygarden, and Ioannis Georgiou: Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society at the University of New Orleans part of Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society
This course provides a global perspective of coastal landscapes, the processes responsible for their formation, diversity, and change through time, as well as societal responses to changes in the coastal zones of the planet. Active learning elements include analyzing real data sets and applying critical thinking and problem-solving skills to real-world coastal issues that affect human populations. Students must complete a capstone project in which they consider a real-world coastal issue from a list of approved cities.
