Earth system science is the study of the interactions and feedbacks between the physical, chemical and biological processes that shape the Earth. This blog follows the progress of the class of 2019 undergraduate students in McGill University’s Earth System Science research course, ESYS 500. Students give frequent updates as they investigate seasonality and climate change in the Saint Lawrence River Basin. Posts will describe both the process of conducting the research and their (jargon-free) research findings.
ESYS500 (Earth systems applications) is taught this year by McGill Earth and Planetary Science professors Natalya Gomez and Jeff McKenzie with TA Dave Purnell. We have teamed up with Diane Dechief at the McGill Writing Center to put together this blog.
