Description: How and why has Earth’s atmosphere evolved over time? We will begin with an understanding of the atmosphere today - its physics, chemistry, and dynamics - work backwards in time to frontiers that are comparatively data-poor. We focus on empirical/observational constraints that drive theories of atmospheric evolution on Earth and other planets. Recommended Prerequisite(s): MATH 211 Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ESCI 540 if student has credit for ESCI 414. Repeatable for Credit.
