Teaching Spatial Analysis of Surficial Processes in Spring ’19

After developing and proposing to teach an experimental upper level undergraduate and graduate level course at Case Western Reserve University, I have received university approval to teach Spatial Analysis of Surficial Processes! I also recently received approval for my request to reserve an interactive learning room and computer lab in the Kelvin Smith Library. This will provide me with extra resources in teaching a course that integrates field observations with an introduction to geographic information systems (GIS), coding in R statistical software, applied multivariate and spatial statistics. The course will emphasize topographic analysis of digital elevation models and the presence and movement of water, soil, and sediment across the surface of the Earth. Because no GIS courses are currently taught on campus, I already have a variety of interest from graduate and undergraduate students in my home department (Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences) as well as those in Civil Engineering and ecologists in the Biology Department!
