ANR 342 Soil & Water Conservation

Prerequisite: ANR 240 (formerly ANR 340) or permission of instructor

This course examines hazards, measurements, causes, and solutions for erosion, sedimentation, and pollution of soils, surface, and groundwater. The primary perspective will be agricultural, but issues related to urban development, engineering, mining, and other land uses also will be discussed. Linkages between soil and water resources and environmental quality will be emphasized. Appalachian examples will be used as models whenever possible. Three lectures and one laboratory session each week.
