The [course_title] course is devoted to the parallel evolution of life and the environment. Chemical and physical processes in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere and the solid earth can influence the life process. In the same time, life can also influence chemical and physical processes on our planet. The course teaches you these interactions between biology and the earth system which is commonly known as Geobiology. The climate history when life appeared, solar system, biochemical tracers, etc. will be covered in the course.
