4 Name of Module Natural Environment Course Code CNE Specialization Core course LM WM EM RM suitable for 1 mandatory for 2 X Credit Points SWS Turn Language 5 3 Winter Term English Prerequisites Learning Goals / Outcome Content None Students get insights into the structure and functioning of geosystems and ecosystems and their interactions with human activities. They are confronted with the complexity of the earth system with its time scales, spatial relations and feedbacks. Global environmental problems with a focus on climate change, biodiversity loss as well as soil and water degradation are discussed. On the regional scale the specific conditions, land use potentials and environmental problems of different ecozones of the tropics and subtropics are exemplified. The lecture enables students to better understand the potentials, vulnerability and resilience of the earth system and its resources. Against the background of global climate change as well as population and economic growths in many developing countries students are prepared for decision-making positions in the field of natural resources management at the regional scale. 1. Basics of system science, ecosystems and landscape systems 2. The climate system: weather and climate, climate elements, physical components of the climate system, solar radiation, energy budget, climate classification, climate variability and change, climate models 3. Geology and geomorphology: structure of the earth, continental drift and plate tectonics, earthquakes and volcanism, rock cycle, exogene and endogene dynamics, geomorphological process dynamics 4. The hydrosphere: properties of water, water in atmosphere, rain, rivers and lakes, groundwater, glaciers, snow, water reservoirs and residence time, global water cycle, regional distribution of water availability 5.
