Research fields related to the environment have a very wide variety. Therefore, to analyze the environment or address environmental issues, a transdisciplinary approach is necessary. This course focuses on how to apply a variety of basic knowledge in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, etc., which you have already learned, to environmental analysis and solving environmental problems. For this goal, lecturers who are specialists of environmental fields will give omnibus type lectures focusing on the above-mentioned points, while also including some cutting-edge research results.
By the end of this course, students will be able to understand how to apply previously learned basic knowledge about mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, etc., to actual environmental research fields.
