Research fields related to the environment have a very wide variety, and analyzing the environment or addressing environmental issues requires a transdisciplinary approach. This is a follow-up course to "Basic Theory of Regional and Global Environment 1", and focuses on how to apply a variety of previously learned basic knowledge on mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, etc., to environmental analysis and solving environmental problems. Lecturers who are specialists of environmental fields will give omnibus type lectures on this theme and include 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.
