Recent events (e.g., flooding, mudslides, sinkholes, tsunamis) highlight the impact of land forming processes on human societies and socioeconomic systems. With these and other extreme events in mind, this course examines how land surface forming processes interrelate with climate and land use. The course focuses on the role of climate, vegetation, and other factors on landform changing processes. Throughout we examine the role of these processes in extreme events and their affects on humans.
