Alamo1 Leads Environmental Disaster Course at UTSA
Our own Dr. Scott Harris is scheduled to lead a second Environmental Disasters course for the UTSA Environmental Science program. This three-credit hour course will be taught one night per week in the Fall 2018 semester, making it available to both traditional and non-traditional students who can enroll at either the undergraduate (ES 3953) or graduate (ES 6973) level. There are no prerequisites and no books to buy. It will be a hands-on course covering everything from the what, why and how to behind-the-scenes insights and details that you will not hear anywhere else.
Brief course description:
This course will focus on the planning, responding and recovery phases of large, complex environmental disasters and the roles and implications for environmental scientists. First-hand perspectives on unique and nationally significant emergencies and disasters ranging from Shuttle Columbia to Hurricane Katrina to Deepwater Horizon to a chlorine derailment from a former U.S. EPA Federal On-Scene Coordinator.
