EARTH 10: Losing California: Design in the age of Climate Change

How will climate change impact the iconic view from the Golden Gate Bridge in 2025, 2050, 2100? Does an emotional attachment to a place motivate meaningful change to preserve it? How can visual or audio stories diminish the spatial and temporal remoteness of global change? During our weekend course we will learn about the science of global change and the ways in which the view from the Golden Gate Bridge may look dramatically different in the future as a result of changing temperatures and rainfall patterns, rising sea levels, shifts in flora and fauna, and decisions about the built environment.  The course will consist of a weekend activity based at the Golden Gate Bridge on April 8 and 9th, followed by two follow-up meetings on campus on April 14 and April 28th. The course will be co-taught by faculty from the School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences and the d.school. Apply by March 10. You can read more about the course and apply here: http://dschool.stanford.edu/losing-california/. Applicants will be selected to ensure a diversity of backgrounds.  Course will be limited to 24 participants. nMeeting times: nSat, April 8, 9:00am- 5:00pmnSun, April 9, 9:00am- 5:00pmnFri, April 14, 10:30am-12:20pmnFri, April 28, 10:30am-12:20pmnSan Francisco & Studio 1

GS 163: Introduction to Isotope Geochemistry (GS 263)

Isotopic variations in nature provide key insights into the age of the Earth and its rocks, as well as the evolution of Earth¿s major reservoirs, including the mantle, crust and hydrosphere. How do we know the age of the Earth? When did continents first form? How have the oceans changed through time? This course will address these and related topics by focusing on the fundamental processes that govern isotopic variations, including radioactive decay, mass dependent isotope fractionation and dynamic transfers between reservoirs.
