Natural and anthropic phenomena, risks and problems
Systemic relations between structures and natural phenomena in the Earth System, its connections through the sea and human impact.
From the study of structure, composition and processes in subsystems of the Earth (Geosphere, Hydrosphere, Atmosphere, Biosphere) basic concepts are reinforced, and dynamic discussions are interacted.
Interactions centered on the sea are analyzed as moderator of the atmosphere and climates, as an agent in the formation of coasts, and as a system that originated and contains life.
The primary production is connected with the secondary production between the organisms of the plankton and the following ones in the networks of the ecosystems.
Agreements are analyzed at national and international level regarding the use of the seas and the marine subsoil. The impact of human action is considered: the use and exploitation of resources and pollution.
Possible actions are discussed to revert the negative impact and concrete works that can be done by elementary school students are discussed, under the guidance of their teachers.
Hourly load, Modality and Evaluation: The course is face-to-face. The 56 teaching hours are distributed as follows: 90% (48 hours) in 12 theoretical-practical meetings of 4 hours each chair. 10% (8 lectures) divided by 6 for work and personal study and 2 for the final evaluation.
