Study Abroad, Exploration Seminar: Natural and Cultural History of Costa Rica

Applications are now open for the Exploration Seminar, Natural and Cultural History of Costa Rica. This course is a 5 credit Study Abroad course (see notes below about credits) and the travel dates fall in between Summer and Autumn quarters (Program dates: 8/27/19 – 9/19/19). The course is led by Drs. John Marzluff and Patrick Tobin, and graduate student Robert Tournay.

Here is the Study Abroad link for specific details: Costa Rica 2019

Robert is hosting several drop-in informational sessions in Winkenwerder 103:

  • Wednesday January 9th, 2:30 – 3:30 pm
  • Monday, January 14th, 1:00 – 2:00 pm
  • Friday, January 18th, Noon – 1:00 pm

These are drop in sessions – so you can stop by anytime during the hour. If these times don’t work for your schedule send Robert an email (tournay) to arrange an alternate time.

Feel free to drop me an email with any questions.

NOTE on credit hours. The credits are autumn quarter credits. The program is designed so that all course work is completed at the end of the program, and before autumn quarter starts. Another thing to know about the credits is that they count towards your 12 credit minimum for full-time status (i.e. financial aid, scholarships, etc.) but they don’t count against the 18 credit limit. That means you can take a lighter load in the autumn quarter… or overload without having to pay extra tuition. Pretty sweet deal.

Please note that the course fee covers all program expenses, including accommodations and ALL MEALS (except two lunches). I mention that because many of the study abroad programs don’t cover all or part of the meals, which can be an unexpected expense. Airfare is not included, but usually runs around $650.00

FISH 513C – A case study of the Pebble Mine EIS

Environmental Impact Statements: A Case Study of the Proposed Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska

FISH 513C, SLN 22469

Winter 2019

Instructor: Daniel Schindler, SAFS (deschind)

Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) are a tool used to inform US federal decision-makers about the environmental effects of proposed development activities. A permit application to develop the Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska, has triggered an EIS through the US Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) who will decide whether to issue a critical permit to allow this project to proceed. The proposed Pebble Mine has become an internationally contentious development project because it is one of the world’s largest gold and copper deposits, but it may present significant risks to water quality, fisheries, and wildlife in the region. The Pebble Mine draft EIS will be released in early 2019 followed by a minimum 45-day public comment period.

In this course, we will critically review the scientific foundation of the Pebble EIS and examine whether it provides an objective and thorough assessment of potential risks to water quality, fisheries, and wildlife in the Bristol Bay region. Participants will be encouraged to submit their assessments as public comments to the Pebble EIS process. Our activities will serve to provide technical feedback on the draft EIS for consideration by the ACOE as they complete the final EIS in late 2019. We will also seek to understand the EIS process more broadly, and to differentiate between science and advocacy in environmental decision-making.

2 credits, grading CR/NC

Meeting time: Tuesday 2:30-4:20 (we will decide on a better time if this slot conflicts with other courses)

*undergraduate students who wish to take this course should email the instructor to obtain permission

FISH 290: Scientific Writing and Communication

There are a few spots open in FISH 290 (Scientific Writing and Communication) in Winter quarter. The content isn’t super fishy and that other natural sciences majors should get a lot from the course.

  1. Gather published and unpublished sources of information and bring them to bear on scientific questions
  2. Critically read scientific writing
