Skrócony opis:

Statistics and modeling in environmental studies course takes basic statistical concepts and extends them to topics of special relevance in environmental studies. The course is intended to provide an insight what is needed to successfully analyze data in environmental sciences. The program emphasizes statistical modeling.

Methods of Teaching and Learning

Lectures, classes, class discussion, guided self study.
