This course focuses on how energy is used and changed in the Earth System. The key questions addressed by this course are: How do various parts of the Earth System interact and use energy? What impacts may occur?

Welcome to our comprehensive exploration of Geography, Energy Resource Use, and Change. In this course, we delve into the intricate dynamics of how geographical factors influence the utilization and transformation of energy resources. From the impact of natural landscapes to the evolving patterns of energy consumption, we aim to unravel the complex relationship between geography and energy.

Join us on this enlightening journey as we navigate through key concepts, case studies, and the transformative trends that shape the global energy landscape. To enhance your learning experience, we have prepared a narrated PowerPoint presentation that serves as a visual guide to our discussions.
