Courses

Courses related to biogeosciences are available across campus. The intent is to collect course information (syllabus, frequency of offering) to aid students in planning their plan of study. Lists are sorted by course number, and include course offering (F = fall; Spring = S; E = Even years, O = odd years, A = every year) and AGU index terms.
